In an ultimatum issued yesterday, via their twitter timeline on­line platform, the Niger Delta Avengers militants said the decision was taken after an emergency meeting of leaders of the various mili­tant groups in the region.

Representatives of Niger Delta People’s Democratic Front ( NDPDF) and Con­cerned Militant Leaders (CML), Precious Iyoyo (Gen­eral Playboy) and General Ben respectively, said the brutality of security agents against the citizens was dis­heartening.

The Niger Delta militants claimed they witnessed how members of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sov­ereign State of Biafra (MAS­SOB), Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Biafra Independent Movement (BIM) were killed in unpro­voked circumstances.

“So many Niger Delta militants witnessed what happened in Onitsha.

“We are too pained to keep quiet. If the Federal Government fails to release them by Friday, June 3, 2016, they will hear from us from Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Akwa Ibom, Cross River and Edo states,” General Playboy said.

Similarly, General Ben said actions of soldiers and policemen last Monday were clear declaration of war on innocent and help­less 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 out for extinction, we will de­fend our people. We will go after security men in an un­precedented manner both in sea and on land. Federal Government should expect more attacks from us.

“We’ll tell the Federal Government that the Niger Delta region is our terrain and no amount of military troops and their armoury will dampen our spirit.

Niger Delta Avengers have asked the Federal Gov­ernment to immediately re­lease corpses of Biafra sup­porters allegedly killed on Monday or risk more attacks from them beginning on Fri­day, June 3.

The militants also pledged a revenge against security agents over what they de­scribed as “unprovoked massacre of peace-loving Biafra people” in Onitsha, Anambra State.

“The Federal Govern­ment should know that the more attacks on Biafra, the more aggressive we become. This is war that involves all of us,” he said.

Scores of Biafra agita­tors were allegedly killed on Monday, in some states, during the celebration of the 49th anniversary of Bi­afra proclamation by the late Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu.
