Notorious militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has threatened to declare the independence of Niger Delta region on 1st of October, 2016.
In contradiction to media reports that it had accepted pleas to embrace negotiations with the Federal Government, the violent militant group said its declaration of independence is still sacrosanct.
A statement issued as regards to the declaration by the spokesperson of the group, Mudoch Agbinibo indicated that the oil rich region was no longer a part of Nigeria.
The statement also averred that it will declare the region an independent entity if the federal government fails to restructure Nigeria.
Agbinibo further cautioned those using the name of the militant group to defraud people, adding that their day of reckoning is close.
The statement 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 Nigerian government fails to retrace its step by restructuring this country, we want to warn the general public that the day of reckoning is close for those using NDA to defraud people.”
