“The avengers are calling on all groups in the region to be strong and resolute as it is obvious that God is on our side.

“The high command of the avengers is calling on you not to attack any soldier and those claiming to have antiaircraft missiles should deist from targeting any aircraft.

“Let us be careful not to offend God in the process of trying to liberate our people from the shackles of the Nigerian government because we need God more than anything right now.

“We also need the international communities as well. Hence, we must desist from any life threatening actions that will derail our genuine struggle for our people.

“All groups are hereby discouraged from indulging in harassing oil workers and soldiers. We urge you all to help any oil workers or soldiers you see in distress.

“The military warplanes hovering round our towns and villages have not struck a soul or destroy any property, so those groups with antiaircraft missiles should dry their gunpowder.

“When it is time to engage the military in combat the whole world will know they started the war not the Avengers. The Niger delta avengers high command will pass the message round that it’s time to engage on gun battle when the time comes.

“So far, we have not engaged the Nigeria military in combat; despite the heavy presence of military on the pipelines. We still find way to carry out our actions without attacking soldiers. The avengers will deal with any group that refuses and attack military.
