Nigerian Navy Threatens Crackdown On Niger Delta Avengers

WARRI-The member representing the Warri Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr. Daniel Reyenieju, has pleaded with the Niger Delta Avengers not to carry out its threat of crippling oil production in the region over alleged Federal Government insincerity on the development of the region.

Ibas, who spoke after the inspection of facilities at the Naval Engineering College, Sapele, Delta State, reassured multinational oil companies that despite the recent threat by the NDA, the navy would protect their staff and oil facilities in the Niger Delta region.

Acting Governor of Delta State, Barrister Kingsley Burutu Otuaro, says the Federal Government (FG) remains committed to dialogue towards developing the Niger Delta.

"This is not the time to resume hostilities", Clark said in a statement issued by the Presidential Amnesty Programme.

He said, "Threats like these are not empty ones, the Federal Government must, therefore, do the needful by addressing some of these concerns".

Their planned action is meant to cripple oil production over perceived government's indifference to development of the region. "We must be able to advance our agitation beyond that to the high grounds of intellectual and constructive engagement", PANDLEAF stated.

He added that PANDEF was sending a delegation to meet the group's leaders.

The CNDV in a statement signed by its Coordinator, Frank Ekpemupolo, and spokesperson, Williams Welemu, advice President Muhammadu Buhari and his handlers to talk less and swing into action as Nigerians are exhausted of their promises as if they are still campaigning for elections. Whereas it is the same region the administration is getting money to fund projects all over the country.

Appealing to the Avengers, Reyenieju warned against worsening an already bad situation, particularly in relation to Nigeria's economy, noting that two wrongs do not make a right.
