Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), has sworn that it would go ahead and declare the independence of Niger Delta region on 1st of October, 2016.
Brig.Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, the spokesperson for militant group Niger Delta Avengers, released this statement via their website. The NDA stated that the oil rich region was no longer a part of Nigeria and that it will declare the region an independent entity if the federal government fails to restructure Nigeria.
“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.”
