A Niger Delta militant group called the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force has vowed to launch missiles against prominent locations in the country.
Some of their targets include Aso Rock, National Assembly, the DSS HQ, military formations and headquarters of various of major oil companies amongst others.
The group had earlier promised to test missiles in the Niger Delta starting from today. They put out a press release on June 6 which says;
In our final meeting it was resolved that the Nigerian Communication Satellite Orbit should be shut down so that it will avoid the cause of electronic radiation to human lives.
Also, the followings occupants of these buildings should as a matter of urgency vacate them immediately in their own interest to save their lives because our fight is not for any human blood, but to destroy all those infrastructures that were built with our oil and gas monies in this country. They include: State House Villa, Abuja; Defence Headquarters; DSS Headquarters; National Assembly; NNPC Towers; Central Bank of Nigeria; Supreme Court/Appeal Court; Agip Headquarters, Abuja; Shell Headquarters, Lagos; Chevron Headquarters, Lagos; Exxon Mobil, Lagos; NLNG, Lagos and Abuja Offices; Kaduna Refinery and all military formations in Abuja, Lagos, Kaduna and Benue.
We equally advise the Diplomatic Community to be neutral on this issue as wrong comments against us will be seen as saboteurs. Where they are staying presently will not be affected which is not part of our targeted areas of destruction in the country.
We will make federal government and oil companies to suffer as they have made the people of Niger Delta region suffers over the years from environmental degradation, and environmental pollution. We shall embarrass the self acclaimed Nigerian Air Force with their recent deployment of fighter aircraft, helicopter gunship and surveillance aircraft when at this digital age, countries are talking about missile development, and they still condescend so low of their present obsolete equipment.
Note, we are going to destroy the ones they have deployed to Escravos, Forcados in Delta State; Bonga oil field, Agbami offshore and Brass in Bayelsa; Bonny in Rivers; Qua Iboe Terminal in Akwa Ibom State, and Opue Keba in Ondo State if they fails to remove them before time. Our crack team has taken inventory of their equipments. Even the present suffering from a rare ear disease known as Meniere’s disease by President Muhammadu Buhari will not win any sympathy to save our action against the federal government. The name Nigeria as a country will come to an end this week.” the group said
