FLASH| Buhari Declares War on Niger Delta Avengers

by on May 8, 2016
 

The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has given fresh orders for the new militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers, to be hunted down.

The new militant group had been responsible for attacks on oil installations, blowing up Chevron’s platform linking Warri and Kaduna refineries on Friday.

According to news agency, Punch, the President gave the fresh order on Friday.

Chevron, after suffering loss due to the attack on the Okan offshore production platform on Wednesday by the militants, said it had lost 105,000 barrels of oil production in three days.

According to AFP’s quote of Chevron’s spokeswoman, Isabel Ordonez, she said in a statement that: “Approximately 35,000 bpd of Chevron’s net crude oil production in Nigeria are impacted,”

According to a presidential aide who preferred to be anonymous, “The President gave special instruction to the military, especially to the Chief of Naval Staff, that this ugly development of vandals in the Niger Delta should end immediately.”

The Acting Director, Defence Information, Brig. – Gen. Rabe Abubakar while speaking in an interview with news agency, Punch on Saturday confirmed the directive handed down by the president.

He said, “We have the order from the President and we are monitoring the activities of the new group. All efforts will be made to bring out those behind it.

“The suspects who perpetrated the first vandalism were apprehended and paraded the day before yesterday (Thursday).

“These ones are not going to be different. We are going out on our operation to stop and apprehend them in accordance with the presidential directive.”

He continued that: “We are not deterred; nobody is happy about it but we are not deterred from doing what we are doing. And more proactive measures would be put in place.

“What they are doing is complete economic sabotage; it is economic terrorism,”

    Comment…Just when we have a leader we Reilly trust to fix this country,the so called avengers appear from no where. I suspect corrupt principal elements from the last administration want to set the country on fire to escape justice but their cheap tactics will not work.

      all of you have missed the salient point because of misunderstanding. WHY DID THE SO- CALLED AVENGERS DESTROY NATIONAL ECONOMIC INFRASTUCTURE BECAUSE TOMPOLO IS NOT PART OF THEIR DESTRUCTIVE AGENDA?. AND WHY ARE THEY SO COWARD TO CONFRONT HIM. AGAIN, WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THEIR ACTION AND TOMPOLO’S REFUSAL TO APOLOGISE TO THEM.
      THE PERPETRATORS DO NOT HAVE RIGHT SENSE OF REASONING AS THIS ACTION WAS NOT A N/DELTA CAUSE.
      THANKS

      Pailine, don’t you read the papers, online news, listen to radio or watch the tv? He declared war against Boko Haram the day he took over the gocernment and he had since declared war against the Fulani herdsment and had repeated his stance on that. The same goes for these useless Niger Delta Avengers.
      These are people that say they have no money but have money to buy arms to destroy oil facilities and thereby criple the nation’s economy.
      If you were grown up enough to know what happened when he was military head of state, you will know that all members of this Niger Delta Avengers and the Fulani herdsmen would be executed if the government laids her hands on any of them. Lucky them, the same is not the case now. Our general had been tamed by democracy. Even stieling the aluminium hand-railings on bridges or stieling street lights earn the thieves direct execution with no respect for which part of the country you come from.
      All these military guys have been part of the nigerian government one way or the other since the British left. Buhari is not someone anyone in the country can scare with war.

      What is your level of reasoning? Remember, their action was a clear economic sabotage against Nigeria state. It is not a revenge against Tompolo because he refused to apologize to them.
      Why couldn’t the Avengers take the fight to him. They are cowards!. They have caused the death of others as collateral damage in the military’s effort to apprehend the perpetrators. No Nigerian would blame the response to the provocation.
      Thanks.

      THE TRUTH ABOUT MOST OF US NIGERIANS IS THAT WE DO NOT READ BOOKS,EVEN SOME OF WHO CLAIMED DEGREE BY FORCE,DON’T READ AFTER YEARS IN SCHOOL..IS ONLY FOOLS THAT WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT EVIL DOERS,MOST ESPECIALLY SOMETHING THAT WILL AFFECT NATION’S ECONOMY. HERDSMEN ARE JUST LIKE LAND SELLERS IN ALMOST ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY,LAND DISPUTES IN NIGERIA CAN ONLY END WHEN GOVERNMENT FULLY TAKES OVER LANDS AS THEIR PROPERTY, I MEAN NOBODY SHOULD HAVE RIGHT TO SELL LAND TO ANY BUYER OR FARM A LAND WITHOUT GOVERNMENT APPROVAL. IT IS A SEPARATE ISSUE ENTIRELY. SO WHO TRY TO COMPARE FULANI AND VANDALIZING THE ONLY SOURCE OF NIGERIA INCOME DO NOT MET WELL FOR US. ALWAYS BE TRUTHFUL TO YOURSELF,HOW MANY OF YOU CHILDREN ARE NOT IN SECRET COURT TODAY IN NIGERIA? ARMED ROBBERS,PROSTITUTE,HUMAN TRAFFICS, 419, I DO NOT EXEMPT MYSELF FROM AMONG ALL THIS I JUST MAKE MENTIONED OF,BUT WORST OF AMONG THESE ARE THE VANDAL OF PIPELINE DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO WASTE A JUST A LITER OF CRUDE? READ YOUR BOOKS. ONLY BUHARI HAVE BOLDLY COME OUT FOR THE FIRST TIME OF 1983 TO FIGHT CORRUPTION 2015 AGAIN HE AGAIN CAME OUT…DON’T YOU THINK IF THIS OLD MAN REALLY HAVE HIS HAND STAINED HE WOULDN’T HAVE STAND THE GROUND SINCE THEM OF THE 2.8 BILLION NAIRA HE WAS ALLEGEDLY STOLEN WHILE IN UK INVESTIGATION FIGHT IT COURSE THAT BUHARI WAS CLEAN? READ YOUR HISTORY AND STOP CONDEMNING BUHARI THE ONLY ONE NIGERIAN WHO HAS FOR LONG LAMENTING ABOUT CORRUPT CIVILIANS… READY UR CYCLOPEDIA BIOGRAPHY OF BUHARI…

      Please, put logical reasoning to your response.
      Someone’s reaction to any situation tells a lot about the quality of such person.
      To ask you, was the act of economic sabotage that was perpetrated against TOMPOLO who refused to apolozize to them or against Nigeria?. the militant group is disorganized as a result of greed and selfish interest and, they are not mindful of their own environmental degradation, unemployment in host communities, collapse of economic activities, etc

      They should fight TOMPOLO!. And they shouldn’t think that this Administration would call anyone to any negotiating table because there is nothing to negotiate.
      Bye.

      Beloved fellow Nigerians, what we are scratching on is too much and highly heavy even more than wet sand bag.
      Rumours all the four cardinals of the this great Nation. Habamana, violence, riot and war,all these are devil’s plotting through his agents and it is evil wind which blow no one any good.
      Declaring war on A,B to Z is not the ultimate,.PLEASE let us PRAY for our dear COUNTRY NIGERIA. Hahaha, I laughed, have you ever experienced starvation, just 2 hours! Please think of weeks, months, and years. Even you Herd men,bokos,etc, you won’t even have the strength to signal your cow, talks of commanding the trigger of your kalashins/gun.

    Comment…warship brings only starvation,enviromental degredation,economic recession among others while peace brings development,enjoyment,peace of mind and employment opportunity.So,avengers have to choose between the former and the later but every resonable soul must have right choise i.e the later.wise saying:if u do not do in peace u will do in pieces.

    now i can see that buhari is the most foolish president that ever lived. God is hardening his heart that will lead to the end of this zoologcal, animalistic system of nigeria.
    Any nation that does not live on justice, equity and clean hands will fall for sure, It is written.
    A country were certain tribe are first class, second and third and forth. You know what i am talking about. hausa/fulani, yoruba, ibo and IJAW respectively.
    You think we don’t know the real owners of the oil wells. Even b4 1914 that the british who gave us christianity are aiding and abating the hausa/fulanis in particular to suppress us, devide and rule us? Now our eyes are open, and we know that heaven helps those who helps themselfs.
    Beyond this militancy issues, the bread ment for the children and the original owners; the dogs are taking it for decates and that does not make the hausa lord over us, they are thiefs legalizing there act of stealing.
    You said that you settled militants? For your information that is just less that OOO.1 percent of the total number of the niger deltans who Ofcos are potential militants. so, what about the graduates, what about the law abiding sheep without a voice, are they your slaves? No! Never again!!.
    Buhari had just proved to us that violence is what taking it by force; for the kingdom of GOD suffereth violence and violence shall take it by for.
    Note, that the niger deltans would rather be BIAFRANS than nigerians. Thus, nigeria must devide in peace or the violence shall break it by force.
