Delta - One of the militant groups that has claimed responsibility for blowing up oil wells and pipelines in the region, the Niger Delta Avengers, said the Federal Government was “not serious” about any dialogue.
The militant group stated this through spokesperson, Brig. Gen Mudoch Agbinibo.
According to them, the peace talk initiated by Federal Government is a delay tactic employed to enable the drones purchased from the United State arrive latest end of August.
"The NDA intelligence agency gathered that the said peace talk or dialogue by the federal government is a delay tactic employed by the federal government, to enable their purchased drones that are said to arrive latest end of August from the United States,” alleged Agbinibo.

“This whole thing makes us to wonder what kind of country is this. We can all see that President Buhari-led government is fraud. They are not serious about any dialogue and made it seems the Niger Delta Avengers are the ones not ready for dialogue" Agbinibo said.
The group further stated the purchase of the drones could not stop them from bringing the country’s economy “to zero.”
“The worse (sic) you can do is to kill poor innocent people which the military is good at but know the Nigeria Economy will suffer,” Agbinibo added.
He encouraged the Federal Government to intensify the oil exploration in the Northeast as they would put a stop to oil exportation from the Niger Delta region.
“Just intensify the oil exploration in the North East as for the ones in the Niger Delta forget about it because the Nigeria government won’t export a drop from our land,” Agbinibo said.
