MEMBERS of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) have vowed to destroy international oil companies and their indigenous counterparts if they fail to heed their warning to quit the region.
The group, in a statement on Tuesday, said “to the international oil companies and indigenous oil companies, it’s going to be bloody this time around.
“Your facilities and personnel will bear the brunt of our fury, which shall fall upon you like a whirling wind.”
The group also dared Mr Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, for being handicapped in helping his people from the siege laid on Gbaramatu communities by soldiers, saying he had already soiled his hands with the Federal Government during the regime of President Goodluck Jonathan.
Members of the group also told the Joint Military Task Force (JTF) carrying out cordon and search in Gbaramatu kingdom in Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta State to square it with them and not vulnerable children and women in the kingdom.
In a statement entitled: “Tompolo before your very eyes your people are suffering,” signed by its spokesperson, Mudoch Agbinibo and sourced from its website late Monday night, the group said the military was deceiving President Muhammadu Buhari to believe that they were prosecuting the war against the avengers.
It described the act of men of the JTF Nigerian Army
as guilty of “the greatest act of cowardice,” adding that this fight, “we believe, is against the Avengers and not the innocent villagers of Gbaramatu Kingdom.
“The Niger Delta is made up of seven states, it is therefore, very funny to lure us to halt our well-planned line of actions that will shock the whole world by harassing innocent villagers,” the statement further read.
