The militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, on Saturday announced it’s intention to recommence it’s operations by which it wreaked havoc on the Niger Delta during President Muhammadu Buhari’s first tenure.
The group relatively crippled Nigeria’s economy between 2016 and 2018 by attacking oil facilities in the region which plunged the nation into recession.
The militant group in a statement made available to the media on Saturday, said it had launched ‘Operation Humble’ aiming at crippling the economy as it did in previous times.
The Niger-Delta Avengers in the statement, also vowed to clamp down on politicians who are working with the Federal Government “to undermine the Niger Delta region”.
Added the group: “It is disheartening that despite being the economic backbone and having resolved to maintain the peaceful environment for the smooth operations of the oil multinationals whose proceeds the country cling unto for economic survival, the Niger Delta and the South-South remain the most underdeveloped, with our needs and interests undermined by the failed Nigerian State”.
