Oil companies in the Niger Delta region have received a 7-day ultimatum from a new militant group who have sworn to crumble the economy of Nigeria. The group identified as Adaka Boro Avengers, ordered these companies to vacate the region beginning from today, Thursday, June 23, 2016 in their own interest, Today.ng reports.
The militants, in the statement signed by General Godday, noted that the bombing of oil installations and pipelines which has been executed in the country is nothing compared to the destruction of more installations which they have lined up for destruction in the South South region.
In what Adaka Boro Avengers also described as ‘No Retreat, No Surrender’, the group said its members have no plans of dialogue with the Federal Government, adding that they will continue their bombing spree until Nigeria becomes a zero economy.
The statement read:
“We the Adaka Boro Avengers stand on our ground that we will not dialogue with the Federal Government of Nigeria. No retreat no surrender. We will not stop until our demands are met. We can no longer withstand the suffering of our people.
“Adaka Boro died for the people of Nigeria but still he’s not recognised by the Nigerian government. We that produces the national cake suffers joblessness, poor electricity, no road to the oil producing communities and many issues too numerous to mention. That’s why we stand to gain our independence.
“Therefore on this notice all multinational oil companies operating in the Niger Delta region should evacuate with immediate effect within 7 days ultimatum starting from 23 June, 2016 or stand to face the rout.”
Meanwhile, just yesterday, another militant group, Ultimate Warriors of the Niger Delta (UWND) asked the Federal Government to be ready for more attacks in the oil-rich region of Nigeria as the two-week ceasefire between them and the government expired without any concrete development or commitment from the government.
