NIGERIA MEDIA LIED: NIGER DELTA AVENGERS NEVER ATTACKED "NIGERIAN SLEEPING SOLDIERS"

NIGERIA MEDIA LIED: NIGER DELTA AVENGERS NEVER ATTACKED "NIGERIAN SLEEPING SOLDIERS"

By Paul Ihechi Alagba

For Family Writers



Earlier reports making the rounds in almost all sections of Nigerian media outlets that scores of Nigerian military were killed in an ambush by the Niger Delta Avengers have been proved to be completely false.

 The Niger Delta freedom fighters, in a recent Press Statement signed by their Spokesperson, Brid. Gen. Mudoch Agbinibo and made available to Family Writers, have dissociated themselves from the gruesome allegation and described it as a ploy to tag the group a terrorist organisation in order to scare away their numerous sympathisers.

 The group unequivocally stated that they are freedom fighters who have come to liberate Biafrans from the bondage of Nigeria and do not believe in any form of shedding of human blood to actualise their laid down objectives. They noted that they are poised to maintain the sanctity of human life despite unwarranted provocations from the Nigerian military, as their major aim to cripple the Oil production in Nigeria which has caused severe suffering to the environment and people of their region.

The group however stated that if at all some military men were killed, they will ensure that those who perpetrated the act, whom they described as alien to their group are brought to justice.

  "The Niger Delta Avengers were not involved in the attack of the military houseboat around Warri, Delta State. Killing of sleeping soldiers is not our style. We promise the world that in this process of liberating our people, not a single blood of Nigeria soldiers will be wasted despite the provocation"

    "Our war is on oil installations not to take innocent lives. For the fact we can't give life, we also don't have the power to take any life. But we are assuring the families of the affected soldiers that we will bring the culprits to book." the ND Avengers disclosed. The group however, warned that if there will ever be a confrontation between them and Nigerian military, it is the Nigerian military that "will throw the first punch."

   Going further, the Avengers advised other freedom fighters and activists in the region to emulate their modus operandi as the days of killing and kidnapping are long gone-

   "You can fight for your people without killing innocent souls. NDA(Niger Delta Avengers) have proved it. We were able to drop Nigeria Oil production from 2million barrels to just 800,000 barrels without killing a soul."

    "We are warning every group to follow our footsteps. The days of killing and kidnapping are over." the statement concluded.
