The statement reads: “The Nigeria military is playing some war game on some illegal bunkering camps and showing video of how they carry out the bombardment. That is so unprofessional don’t think they can intimidate the NDA with those scarp jet bombers. They can deploy fourth generation jet-bombers that will not stop us from fighting for our people.
“We challenge the military to share with the public the militants killed in the so-called air strike. We are very sure they won’t share the images of militants killed because none was killed except innocent women and children.
“What we are saying is the country should be restructured. The call for restructuring of Nigeria has gone beyond the NDA. The only group of persons against the restructuring is the Villa. The federal government should just listen to the voice of the citizens instead of playing the deaf ear game.
“We officially say that @agbiniboND is our new official twitter account handle. Twitter can block or suspend our account but they can’t stop or block our struggle.”
Over 21 militants at the hands of operatives from the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) according to News24.
The arrests form part of a continued security operation that has seen scores of militants placed in the hands of security officials.
Emma Okeh, PR Officer for the NSCDC, has claimed that the suspects are currently being held in centres run by the military and the Department of State Services.
“Apart from the 19 suspects that were arrested since Thursday when the operation against the militants started, we have apprehended 21 others, bringing the total number to 40,” Okeh was quoted as saying.
