Nigeria Navy vows to deal with Niger Delta Avengers

Nigeria Navy vows to deal with Niger Delta Avengers

"The Avengers' offensive will erode gains already made by subsisting dialogue to which the FG remains committed and is designing a holistic approach to resolving the Niger Delta question", Otuaro cautioned, adding: "NDA's Operation Red Economy will halt whatever development projects that are ongoing in the region and possibly new ones conceived and expressed by the FG before the world which is watching".

In a statement by his media aide, Paul Bebenimibo, Tompolo said he had no affiliation with the NDA.

PANDEF, had in a 16 point agenda it presented to Buhari, listed what the oil region expected from the Federal Government, which according to them will help address the issue of reoccurring militancy in the area. Let us also state here that these accusations do not take away the fact that our dear country is at a crossroads. Eminent Nigerians have repeatedly said in recent times that Nigeria has never been divided like this since independence in 1960. "Those that have ears let them hear!"

He accused a prominent traditional ruler in the region, Pere Charles Ayemi-Botu, of working with third forces to scuttle the meeting of Niger Delta elders in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, in October this year in order to discredit PANDEF. "For sea fearers who use the sea, Navy is ready to protect seafarers who are on legitimate businesses", the Navy boss said.

"But it is also securing the space for others to contribute and that's what President Buhari's administration is doing".




Boroh had promised that the Federal Government would immediately start a dialogue with the Niger Delta people."What the Niger Delta people want is the implementation of previous promises made by government and not further dialogue, to divert attention and deceive Niger Deltans".

Usani further noted that the Federal Government was unwavering to the development of the region for which the Avengers are threatening fire and brimstone.

The Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ibas, said Monday that the Nigerian Navy had reinforced security measures to militant insurgency, sea pirates, kidnapping and illegal bunkering.

"We have been appealing to them to just be patient with us because most of the times, the issues that are brought up are those that tend to portray the quest for the development of the region".

"For instance, the Okerekoko University, you are aware that the vice-president has directed that that University must take off". The other issue is the communities being part of surveillance of the petroleum infrastructure in the region.
