Brig.Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, the spokesperson for militant group Niger Delta Avengers, released this statement via their website. It read,
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 it’s step by restructuring this country. We want to warn the general public that those using NDA to defraud people days of reckoning is close.
