– The Niger Delta Avengers warned other emerging
groups to desist from kidnapping and attacking soldiers
– They also urged other militant groups that have
antiaircraft missiles to desist from targeting any
aircraft
– The Avengers vowed to deal with any group that
refuses and attacks the military
The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has noted that the
liberation of the Niger Delta people has taken a new swing
with the emergence of new groups all over the region.
The NDA warned other emerging groups to desist from
kidnapping and attacking soldiers.
In a statement issued on Saturday, June 4, by its
spokesperson, Brigadier General Mudoch Agbinibo, the
NDA urged other groups that have antiaircraft missiles to
desist from targeting any aircraft.
“Let us be careful not offend God in the process of trying to
liberate our people from the shackles of the Nigerian
government because we need God more than anything
right now. We also need the international communities as
well. Hence, we must desist from any life threatening
actions that will derail our genuine struggle for our people.

“All groups are hereby discouraged from indulging in
harassing oil workers and soldiers. We urge you all to help
any oil workers or soldiers you see in distress.
“The military warplanes hovering round our towns and
villages have not strike a soul or destroy any property, so
those groups with antiaircraft missiles should dry their
gunpowder,” the statement read in part.
The Avengers noted that they carried out all their actions
without attacking soldiers, and vowed to deal with any
group that attack the military.
“When it is time to engage the military in combat the whole
world will know they started the war not the Avengers. The
Niger delta avengers high command will pass the message
round that it’s time to engage on gun battle when the time
comes. So far, we have not engaged the Nigeria military in
combat; despite the heavy presence of military on the
pipelines. We still find way to carry out our actions without
attacking soldiers. The Avengers will deal with any group
that refuses and attacks military,” they said.
Earlier this week, the Avengers issued a serious warning to
AGIP not to repair any of the blown pipelines in Bayelsa.
Before then, the group, which claimed responsibility for the
vandalism of oil and gas pipeline in the Niger Delta region,
blew up the Ogboinbiri-Tebidaba and Clough Creek-
Tebidaba pipelines in Bayelsa state.
