The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) on Tuesday threatened to begin bloody attacks against oil companies, their personnel and the Nigerian military. The militant group in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, ‘Brig. Gen’ Murdock Agbinibo, also taunted the wanted ex-militant Leader, Government Ekpumpolo aka Tompolo over the military siege in his Gbaramatu community in Delta State.
Murdock claimed that instead of going after the avengers, the military was looking for soft targets through its siege in Gbaramatu. He added that the group intelligence revealed that Capt. Okunbor Idahosa, Brigadier Commander, Benin, Maj. Farouk Yahaya and the Officer Commanding, Army Gunboat, JTF, Major M.B. Yahaya in collaboration with Ayiri Emami, were behind the travails in Gbaramatu.
Murdock said: “It is not our business what goes on in Gbaramatu Kingdom but our concern is the innocent children, women and aged people whom the Nigerian military has chased away from their homes and now taking refuge in the forest. We warned you before-hand that the Nigerian Government can never be trusted.
