Cancel your visit to Niger Delta or die!, Avengers warn Buhari

01 June 2016, 14:20

Abuja - Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against visiting the Niger Delta, Herald reports.

The militants told Buhari to sign his death warrant before coming to the creeks and further said that any representative sent will also be killed.

The group made the threat in a statement on Radio Biafra on Wednesday in reaction to the killing of some Biafra protesters by the Nigerian Army on Monday.

"This is Niger Delta Avengers.....it has come to our notice that the Nigerian army killed our brothers who went to remember our dead heroes on 30th may in Nkpor

Anambra State, the army will hear from us, you are all monsters but you must pay.

“Buhari do not step your foot in our land because we heard you want to visit Ogoni land. Before coming you should sign your death warrant because we will kill you.

“If you don’t come and decide to send representives, you should also sign their death warrant. Any Niger Delta elder working against our people should also sign their death warrant.

“Finally we are urging all Biafrans who to us are our brothers to keep faith with Nnamdi Kanu as they cannot harm him even in their custody thank you”.

The president's planned visit – which is expected to begin on Thursday (2 June 2016) according to News24 comes as attacks on oil pipelines blamed on the new group Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) partially halted oil production, and forced Chevron and Royal Dutch Shell to close at least two plants.

Buhari will visit a Niger Delta area called Ogoniland to launch a much-delayed programme to clean up areas heavily polluted by oil spills, said the government official who asked not to be named.
