The militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), has restated its threat to create a Niger Delta Republic from Nigeria, should the Federal Government fail to consider calls for the restructuring of the country.
In a statement dispatched electronically to the media Thursday by its spokesman, Mudoch Agbinibo, the group suggested an October 1 ultimatum, hinging its reason for the threat on an alleged division of the country by the administrations ‘misdirected policies’.
The statement said the nation’s situation had become so precarious that nobody, not even the Niger Delta people, wish to continue to be part of the Nigerian system.
“Our prayer for Buhari and the Northern hypocrite (Northern Governors) is that oil should be found in commercial quantity in the North, so they can let the Niger Delta go.
“The Buhari Led government has fail Nigerians with their misdirected policies that has divide the country, as such nobody wants to be part of that failed state not even the Niger Delta.
“The October 1st, declaration of independence is still sacrosanct. If the Nigeria government fails to retrace its step by restructuring this country. We want to warn the general public that those using NDA to defraud people days of reckoning is close,” the statement said.
