The Avengers Draws World Attention to Niger Delta Plight

The Niger Delta Avengers militant group has drawn world attention to hat it called ongoing terror by the Nigerian state against the region.

In a statement posted on the group’s websiteon Thursday, its spokesman, Brig. Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, said the group will resist and correct with every means necessary, injustices done to the people of the region.

“We are calling on the international community especially Britain, France, the United State of America, Russia, China and European Union to speak up against this ongoing terror and come to the aid of the Niger Delta, as witnesses to this grave inhumanity and history of terror perpetuated against the people of the Niger Delta daily.

“The Nigerian government has decided to mobilise her military might to intimidate, torture, maim, victimise and bombard a section of the nation state and her citizenry to allow the free flow of our oil.

“Since the amalgamation of Nigeria in 1914 to date, our resources have been used to sustain the political administrative live wire of Nigeria to the exclusion of the Niger delta.

“Finally, we are calling on the international community, to come and support the restoration of our right to peaceful self-determination from this tragedy of 1914 that has expired since 2014.

“We want our resources back to restore the essence of human life in our region for generations to come because Nigeria has failed to do that. The world should not wait until we go the Sudan ways,” the statement said.
