Adaka Boro Avengers vow to declare independence with Biafra

22 August 2016, 15:32

Delta - The Adaka Boro Avengers (ADA) has slammed the Niger Delta Avengers for announcing a ceasefire and has promised to declare a Niger Delta Republic on October 1.

The Avengers announced on Sunday, August 1 that they were ready to negotiate with the federal government and stop the vandalism of oil and gas pipelines. The group announced a ceasefire and named Edwin Clark as the leader of its negotiation team.

In a statement issued by Edmos Ayayeibo who is the spokesperson of the group, it said it rejects any form of negotiation with the federal government.

“There is no going back this time round.”

“We the Adaka Boro Avengers are throwing our weight behind the Niger Delta Avengers on the declaration of Niger Delta Republic come October 1. Our earlier abortion of the declaration was at the instance of the Niger Delta Republic. This time round, there’s no going back and Nigerians should expect a different country call Niger Delta Republic.

“Arrangements have been concluded for the declaration. The people of the Niger Delta region are tired of President Muhammadu Buhari and his APC misrule, and we have decided to go and no one can stop us.

“The matter at hand is more than any police force or military personnel.”

The group said it was ready to collaborate with Biafra agitators to actualise their October 1 dreams and that it would be launching a radio station in two weeks that would broadcast their message regularly.

This is happening a day after the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) urged the federal government to ignore the outcome of the meeting of the Niger Delta Coastal States, which held in Warri on Friday. The meeting was jointly convened by former Information Minister Edwin Clark and Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State according to News24.

A statement issued by the group and signed by Mudoch Agbinigbo said MEND is in full support of the ongoing military action in the Niger Delta and categorically urged the federal government to ignore the communique released at the end of the meeting convoked by Clark and Okowa for a number of reasons.

The first, said MEND, was that the communique failed to categorically condemn the activities of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA). This, reasoned MEND, was because Clark is a major promoter of the NDA, as was recently claimed by the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA).
