NIGER DELTA AVENGERS: WE ARE YOUNG, EDUCATED AND TACTICAL

NIGER DELTA AVENGERS: WE ARE YOUNG, EDUCATED AND TACTICAL

By Okonkwo Isaac Somto

For Family Writers



I sincerely pity those who call Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) empty heads. If you think they don't know what they are doing or just clueless and making noise, while they issue empty threats, then I do pity you, really I do. These NDA are young, educated, well trained, well travelled, enlightened, well equipped and most of them were educated in east Europe. So as you can imagine, you don't want to take them for granted and they seriously deserve their attention. Criticism and condemnation won't stop them; instead it will only make matters worse. NDA are very coordinated and tactical, so if President Muhammadu Buhari thinks by sending the Nigeria Military down to Niger Delta and trying to use force to stop them, then I reserve my utter most sympathy for the Nigeria military in advance.


"To the Nigeria military the Niger Delta avengers is among you. And we know all your plans so we will always ten steps ahead of you. In our meeting comprising all heads of the strike teams, which was held in Bayelsa, The Niger Delta Avengers high Command comes to the conclusion that, if the military harass or invade any community in the region then you (Nigeria military) will get a feel of the Avengers. If you smart or intelligent enough you will look inward not outside, we know when you are vulnerable but not take our calmness for granted".-Niger Delta Avengers.


So as you can observe, they seriously mean business. As for president Buhari I will personally advise you to drop your military ego and stubbornness, because Niger Delta Avengers are not making empty threats. And if you "Buhari" still want to go ahead and make a bloody confrontation just like you plan to do, then I wonder why you were willing to negotiate with Boko-Haram but don't want to dialogue with NDA? In fact you begged Boko-Haram who killed over 100,000 people to come to the tables of negotiation but now you violently want to send your armed forces to Niger Delta to confront NDA? Brainless!


It’s very simple give them what they want. Besides what they are asking is not against the law and also very reasonable. Here are the Niger Delta Avengers list of conditions for peace:



1. The immediate implementation of the report of the 2014 National Conference report, failure of Nigeria will forcefully break-up.


2. President Buhari, the director-general of the State Secret Service and the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in Bayelsa state, Timipre Sylva should apologize to the people of the Niger Delta region and family of Late Chief DSP Alamieyesegha for killing him with intimidation and harassment because of his party affiliation.


3. The ownership of oil blocks in Nigeria must reflect 60% for the oil producing people and 40% for the non-oil producing people.


4. The only Nigerian Maritime University sited in the most appropriate and befitting place –Okerenkoko in Delta state, must start the 2015/2016 academic session immediately.


5. The minister of transportation, Rotimi Amechi should apologize to the Ijaws and the entire Niger Delta people for his careless and reckless statement about the citing of the University in Okerenko.


6. Ogoniland and and all oil polluted lands in the Niger Delta must be cleaned up, while compensation should be paid to all oil producing communities.


7. Radio Biafra director and Indigenous Peoples of Biafra leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, should be released unconditionally.


8. The Niger Delta Amnesty programme must be well funded and allowed to continue to run effectively.


9. All APC members indicted for corruption should be made to face trial like their counterparts in the Peoples Democratic Party.


10. All oil multi-nationals and foreign investors should observe these demands, as their business interest in the country will be first targeted.


Buhari should not forget, he begged Boko-Haram for negotiations, now he should swallow his pride and give Niger Delta Avengers what they want.  After all Buhari started all these by making the country unlawful, unsafe, brutal and violent, when he started sending his armed forces to kill innocent civilians and also issued the illegal arrest of those who he got scared of( e.g., Nnamdi Kanu). So give them what they want or face their wrath, it’s that simple!
