The Niger Delta Avengers has claimed an involvement in the recent militant activities and attacks in the South-West.
The Air Force and other security agencies on July 28 started an aerial bombardment on the creeks and criminal hideouts the militants came through to terrorise some Lagos and Ogun communities.
The militant group while claiming responsibility for the activities in Arepo communities and others in Lagos and Ogun states have accused President Muhammadu Buhari of going against calls for Nigeria to be restructured.
Mudoch Agbinibo, spokesman for the Niger Delta Avengers in a statement warned the Federal Government that the recent attacks on the militant hideouts would not stop the group from fighting for their people. The group also accused the military of killing innocent women and children during their air raid.
According to the statement, “The Nigeria Military is playing some war game on some illegal bunkering camps and showing video of how they carry out the bombardment. That is so unprofessional, don’t think they can intimidate the NDA with those jet bombers.
“They can deploy fourth generation jet-bombers that will not stop us from fighting for our people. We challenge the military to share with the public the militants killed in the so-called air strike.
“We are very sure they won’t share the images of militants killed because none was killed except innocent women and children.”
“The call for restructuring of Nigeria has gone beyond the NDA. The only group of persons against the restructuring is the Villa. The Federal government should just listen to the voice of the citizens instead of playing the deaf ear game.”
