Niger Delta Avengers has given a fresh ultimatum to the Nigerian government on June 1, Wednesday.  Saying that the Federal government must release the corpses of the pro-Biafra agitators, this ultimatum was to last till Friday, June 3, 2016. They also threatened to revenge the killing of pro-Biafrans by the Nigerian military and police.

In a statement released on-line made it clear that their determination to avenge the attack on the pro-Biafran supporters was reached after they had an emergency meeting organised by some leaders of different freedom fighters groups within Biafra land. The statement reads in part: “If Federal government fails to release the corpses by Friday, June 3, 2016, they will hear from us from Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Akwa Ibom, Cross River and Edo states.” Precious Iyoyo, aka General Playboy, the leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Democratic Front, and his colleague of the Concerned Militant Leaders, General Ben, stated that it was depressing to see the level of genocide committed against the people. They expressed sympathy for Biafrans killed. Continuing that they were aware of how members of MASSOB, the Indigenous People of Biafra and the Biafra Independent Movement were killed without provocation. They promised to go after the Nigerian soldiers in a new dimension adding that the operation would be carried both on the sea and on the land. General Ben had particularly said the government has simply declared war against innocent Nigerians.

“It is now war between the militants and security men. Since innocent and helpless citizens, especially from South-South and South East, have been marked for extinction, we will defend our people,” he said. The ultimatum is coming several days after pro-Biafran supporters were killed during a clash with security agencies in Onitsha, Anambra state during the commemoration of the defunct Biafra Republic.
