The Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force, JNDLF, the militant group that threatened a missile launch, says Garba Shehu is lying to PMB.
The group also restated their resolve to blow up 10 oil and gas facilities in Bayelsa State.
Recall that Avengers pleased with them not to launch their missiles some weeks ago.
JNDLF stated that oil and gas pipelines running from Ogboinbiri in Southern Ijaw of Bayelsa state to Obrinkon in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers state are “to be finally cut off from transmission.”
According to ‘General’ Akotebe Darikoro and Torunnanaowei Latei, the gropu’s principal leaders, JNDLF will bomb flow stations of Ogboinbiri, Oporoma, Peremabiri, Tabidaba, Nembe, Brass, Chevron platform in Koluama, Okordia-Zarama and Biseni, including Gbarain-Ubie gas gathering plant, respectively.
“We further warn those staying around and within those areas to please leave because our mission is to cripple the economy of the country and not to kill any human being on earth.
“Our Field Commanders have been instructed what to do and those who are on standby in Rivers, Akwa-Ibom, Edo, Delta Cross River await after Bayelsa state operations.
“We further warn that henceforth, any attack on Ijaw communities or person(s) by the military or para-military bodies in the region, we will not hesitate to order our shoot-at-sight squad of any uniformed personnel in the region.
JNDLF commended Dr. Ibe Kachikwu for what it described as “Bold steps he personally took to resolve the injustice created and sponsored by the wicked companies and government in Nigeria.”
Recall that the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu, had stated that Buhari’s government had opened talks with NDA.
According to Garba, “My conversation on this issue with General Babagana Munguno, the National Security Adviser, proves he met 14 groups claiming leadership to both NDA and JNDLF.
“Each of the groups had been brought to him by a serving governor or a former one; a serving minister or one that had left office with assurances that “this group is the one to talk to.”
“The amazing discovery he made from his meetings is the lack of unity among them as each group that came attacked the one that came before it as inconsequential”, Shehu had written.
Avengers have long denied any such meeting.
“We, the Niger Delta Avengers, have not negotiated with anyone. So we don’t know where Mr. Garba shehu and General Babagana Munguno, the National Security Adviser, are getting their information from.
“They are clearly deceiving their Pharaoh, General Buhari.
“If they have been negotiating with anybody, it clearly shows they had been negotiating with fraudsters and their (national security agency) created militant group”, the NDA stated.
