Niger Delta Terrorists Threaten Abuja

The new militant group in the Niger Delta region known as the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) yesterday threw the region into tension following its threat to launch missile attacks against some targets in the country today.
The group had last week issued a statement claiming to be in possession of six dangerous missiles and threatened to launch it on Tuesday (today) if certain conditions are not met by the federal government including the total withdrawal of the military from communities in the Niger Delta.
The group, in a statement yesterday threatened to attack the State House in Abuja, the Defence Headquaters, the DSS Headquaters, the Nigerian Police Headquaters, the National Assembly, the NNPC tower in Abuja, the Central Bank Headquarters and the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal.
Others include the AGIP Headquarters, SHELL Headquarters, Lagos, CHEVRON Headquarters, Lagos, EXXON MOBIL, Lagos, NLNG, Lagos  and Abuja offices, Kaduna Refinery and all military formations in Abuja, Lagos, Kaduna and Benue.
The statement by the militant group,issued via email yesterday and signed by General Akotebe Darikoro (Commander, General Duties), General  Torunanaowei Latei (Creeks Network Coordinator), General Agbakakuro Owei-Tauro (Pipelines Bleeding Expert) and General  Pulokiri Ebiladei (Intelligence Bureau), claimed that the missiles will be launched at night for the people of the region to witness the terror against the listed targets.
The statement entitled, “Vacate Those Buildings In Lagos, Abuja And Kaduna Refinery Now!”,  said that in their final meeting it was resolved that the Nigerian Communication Satellite Orbit should be shut down to avoid electronic radiation.
The statement reads in part, “Also, the followings occupants of these buildings should as a matter of urgency vacate them immediately in their own interest to save their lives because our fight is not for any human blood but to destroy all those infrastructures that were built with our oil and gas monies in this country. We will make federal government and oil companies to suffer as they have made the people of Niger Delta region suffer over the years from environmental degradation, and environmental pollution.
“We shall fire these missiles’ simultaneously at the night, as this will enable every Nigerian to see the movement of the missiles and equally to believe the seriousness we attached to the final breakup as predicted by the United States of America (USA). We equally advice the diplomatic community to be neutral on this issue as wrong comments against us will be seen as saboteurs.
Where they are staying presently will not be affected which is not part of our targeted areas of destruction in the country.”
“We shall embarrass the self acclaimed Nigerian Air Force with their recent deployment of fighter aircraft, helicopter gun ship and surveillance aircraft when at this digital age, countries are talking about Missile development, and they still condescend so low of their present obsolete equipment. This is sad indeed!”
“Note, we are going to destroy the ones they have deployed to Escravos,Forcados in Delta State; Bonga oil field, Agbami offshore and Brass in Bayelsa; Bony in Rivers; Qua Iboe Terminal in Akwa Ibom State, and Opuekeba in Ondo State if they fails to remove them before time. Our crack team has taken inventory of their equipment. Even the present suffering from a rare ear disease known as Meniere’s disease by President Muhammadu Buhari will not win any sympathy to save our action against the federal government. The name Nigeria as a country will come to an end this week.”
