Niger Delta Militant Threatened to Bomb Any building built with Oil Money including Aso Villa - Punch News

Niger Delta militants NOT Niger Delta Avengers, on Monday made a vow to strike some selected national formations, including Aso Villa, the National Assembly and the Central Bank of Nigeria.

They urged their occupants to leave as it resumes full blown war against the Nigerian government.
Meanwhile, tension has continued to mount in the region in view of the earlier threat to launch six missiles, which expires today (Tuesday).
Their anger, according to the militants under the aegis of the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force, is to destroy any vital government institution built with oil and gas resources from the Niger Delta region.
In a statement issued on behalf of the militant group in Warri by General Akotebe Darikoro (Commander, General Duties), General Torunanaowei Latei (Creeks Network Coordinator), General Agbakakuro Owei-Tauro (Expert, Pipelines Bleeding) and General Pulokiri Ebiladei (Intelligence Bureau) of the JNDLF’s Joint Revolutionary Council, the militants also threatened to attack national assets in cities, such as Lagos, Abuja and Kaduna in the days ahead.
Although the specific date which the group will commence its operation was not stated in the release, they however warned residents and employees of such buildings to vacate so as not to fall victims of the attacks.
It reemphasised that the group would fire missiles simultaneously in the night to enable every Nigerians see their movements. The militants said this is to show their seriousness about actualising the nation’s breakable prospect, as predicted by the United States of America.
Other points also marked for attack by the militant group include the Defence Headquarters, the Directorate of State Security Headquarters, Police Headquarters, NNPC Towers, Supreme Court/Appeal Court and Agip Headquarters, Abuja.
Some others are Shell Headquarters, Lagos; Chevron Headquarters, Lagos; Exxon Mobil, Lagos; NLNG, Lagos and Abuja offices; Kaduna refinery and all military formations in the country.
The group in the statement said, “In our final meeting, it was resolved that the Nigerian Communication Satellite Orbit should be shut down so that it will avoid causing electronic radiation to human lives.
“Also, the following occupants of these buildings should, as a matter of urgency, vacate them immediately in their own interest, especially to save their lives, because our fight is not targeted at any human blood but to destroy all those infrastructures that were built with our oil and gas monies in this country.”
Meanwhile, some residents of the coastal communities in Delta State on Monday began massive relocation of their family members to the upland area, owning to the group’s threat to launch six missiles beginning from today (Tuesday).
Some of the apprehensive coastal dwellers who arrived in Warri, Burutu, Patani and Ughelli areas of the state on Monday appealed to the militants to consider their plight as they were already going homeless in the renewed hostilities in the region.
A prominent Niger Delta leader, Chief Favour Izoukumor, described the missile launch threat as a needless venture and asked President Muhammadu Buhari to have a rethink about any military action to confront the Niger Delta militants.
Izoukumor said employing political measures could help to forestall further militants’ attacks on the nation’s oil facilities.
Bombing Aso Rock in  Abuja is not a child's play, but if they succeeded it means Nowhere is save in Nigeria any more, We GutsyNaija are praying for Peace to reign in our dear country, 9igeria
