NEW militant group, Niger-
Delta Avengers yesterday listed
some oil blocs allegedly owned
by former Vice President Atiku
Abubakar, former Minister of
Defence, General Theophilus
Danjuma, ex-Minister of
Petroleum, Alhaji Riwalnu
Lukman, other northerners and
South-Westerners in Niger-
Delta-region, and issued them
a two-week ultimatum to shut
down operations and evacuate
the workers from the locations or
have them blown up.
Meantime, coming on the heels of the federal government’s
decision to deregulate the
downstream sector leading
to astronomical increase in
the pump price of petroleum
products from N86.50 to N145,
the Nigerian Labour Congress,
NLC, has vowed to mobilise
its allies to resist the decision
which it described the height
of insensitivity.
In the foregoing, the
militant group, asking for a
sovereign state of the Niger
Delta, in an electronic mail
by its spokesperson, Col
Mudoch Agbinibo, forwarded
to Nigerian Pilot at 8.47am,
warned: “If at the end of the
ultimatum and you’re still
operating, we will blow up all
the locations. It will be bloody.
So, just shut down.”
The oil blocs listed in the
statement are “Apo Well

is worth $100 billion. Mike
Adenuga’s Conoil controls and
operates six (6) oil blocs and
exports about 500,000 barrels
of crude oil daily. These six oil
blocs are worth $500 billion.”
The group said: “From our
analysis above, 90 percent
of oil blocs are allocated to
individuals from northern
Nigeria and some confused
elements from the region
are calling the Niger Delta
Avengers names; some are
calling us criminals.
“Our question to these
groups of individuals calling
us names is: where were you
when all these atrocities were
happening to the people of the
Niger Delta?”
On the rumour that oil has
been discovered in the North
East, Niger Delta Avengers
said: “How will you feel if this
found oil is being managed by
Niger Deltans? We are very
sure the Niger Deltans will
not even have two percent oil
bloc if oil is really found in
the North-East. If you did not
shut down, we will shut your
stations permanently for you.”
On the strikes of the group,
which have devastated oil
and gas operations of major
oil companies in the region
and practically crippled
crude oil production, it said:
“From the high command
of the Niger Delta Avengers,
we congratulate all the strike
teams of the avengers. Without
taking any innocent life or that
of the Nigeria military, we
were able to shut down 50 per
cent of crude production.
“We have been seeing a lot
on the media about us. Some
are asking, “Who are you
avenging?” some calling us
empty heads, ex-agitators
have been condemning us on
daily basis. Our criticiser from
other part of the country, we
do not have anything to tell
you because you clearly do not
know how life is in the region.
“To our criticizers from the
region, we want you to know
you are all cowards and afraid
to stand for your people.
“To ex-agitators of the likes
of Tompolo, We know why
you people are after us. Our
agitation is more civilized
than yours, the Niger Delta
Avengers is more concerned
with people of Niger Delta
unlike you (ex-agitations) that
were into kidnapping, killing
of Nigeria soldiers, sea piracy,
vessel and tanker hijacking.
However, we were able to
carry out all our operations
without killing a fly. We have
sophisticated arms far better
than what you use to have
during your kidnapping
days,” it added

THESE OIL THIEVES ARE PARASITES IN THE SOCIETY AND YOU MUST MEET THEM FACE TO FACE TO TEACH THEM A LESSON OF THEIR LIVES. THESE ARE BLOOD SUCKING VAMPIRES AND MUST BE HANDLED IN A WAY THEY DESERVE. I CAN TELL YOU THAT A VAST MAJORITY OF NIGERIANS HAVE NO MERCY FOR THESE LOOTERS. BY NOW THESE LOOTERS SHOULD BE HIDING AND RUNNING FOR THEIR LIVES. WHILE THE NIGERIAN MASSES ARE SUFFERING AND DO NOT HAVE THEIR DAILY BREAD, THESE OIL LOOTERS AND THIEVES ARE STASHING AWAY BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN FOREIGN ACCOUNTS AND THIS DAURA DUMB BUHARI IS SUPPOSEDLY FIGHTING A WAR AGAINST CORRUPTION???? IT IS THE HIGH THIEVES LIKE ATIKU WHO SPONSORED BUHARI DURING HIS ELECTIONS FROM THAT OIL MONEY, THAT IS WHY BUHARI DARE NOT INVESTIGATE ATIKU FOR HIS LOOT STASHED IN NIGERIAN AND FOREIGN BANKS.

    BUHARI IS ACTIVELY AND KNOWINGLY AIDING AND ABETTING LARGE SCALE CORRUPTION IN NIGERIA TODAY AND IS DELIBERATELY SHUTTING HIS EYES AND EARS TO THESE ROGUE AND LOOTER POLITICIANS FROM THE NORTH. THESE LOOTERS HAVE NO MORAL GROUND TO STAND TO DEFEND MY ACCUSATIONS. THEY ARE FANTASTICALLY OIL RICH THIEVES OF NIGERIA TODAY.
