The Niger Delta, the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force, one of the splinter militant groups in the south-south region of Nigeria has threatened to destroy infrastructure built with oil money in Nigeria, including Aso Rock Villa an the refineries.
The militant group in a statement on Monday, vowed to shut down Nigerian Communication Satellite Orbit so that launching of missiles will not cause electronic radiation to human lives.
The group said it was going to launch six missiles that will destroy key buildings like the Presidential Villa, National Assembly, Defence Headquarters and 12 others.
It warned occupants of the targeted buildings to vacate the buildings so as to avoid unnecessary loss of innocent lives.
The group also called on the international community to remain neutral as the militants battle the Nigerian Government.
The statement was jointly 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.
The statement read: “The followings occupants of these buildings should as a matter of urgency vacate in them immediately in their own interests 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 suffers over the years from environmental degradation, and environmental pollution.

“We shall fire these Missiles’ simultaneously at the night, as this will enable every Nigerians to see the movement of the MISSILES and equally to believe us of our seriousness attached to the final breakup as predicted by the United States of America (USA).”
The group warned the Diplomatic Community to be neutral on this issue as wrong comments against the militants 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,” the militants said.
“We shall embarrass the self acclaimed Nigerian Air Force with their recent deployment of fighter aircraft, helicopter gunship and surveillance aircraft when at this digital age.”
The group said countries are talking about Missile development, while the military are still talking of “their present obsolete equipment”.
“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 fail to remove them before time,” the group added.
“Our crack team has taken inventory of their equipments. 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.”
“The so called military operations code named ‘OPERATION PULO SHIELD’ in the Niger Delta region are our partners in the oil bunkering activities, because presently without been told the former JTF Commander, Major-General Emmanuel Atewe was arrested by the EFCC last week over pipelines surveillance contract amounting to N8.2 billion in the region.”
The militants said the action is an eye opener to the federal government that the military are fully involved in illegal bunkering in the area.
“They only destroy those who could not afford their bidding and further lobby to come to the Niger Delta region because of what they are gaining from the area,” the group said.
The group condemned the Nigerian military while also disassociating itself from the Niger Delta Avengers and Tompolo.
The group said: “Imagine, an Army private’s and corporals from the North could build business plaza of 3 storeys with several estate and other buildings including exotic cars to the detriment of the region? The Pharaoh of Nigeria (Buhari) should take the counsel of sycophants and jesters around him of the region especially Mr. Ayiri Emami and Professor Ita Sagey who are presently in our searchlight. The founder of the Niger Delta Ex-Agitators, Israel Akpodoro, is a dead man and that he should not hide for linking former President, Goodluck Jonathan and Governor Seriake Dickson with the Avengers. We are not in ANY community, the Military can’t locate Tompolo but we have identified where he is now.
“Presently, Tompolo is in Libya and we’ll get him dead or alive for betraying us in supporting the federal government against us.
“Nigerian Military has weak intelligence gathering mechanism hence they could not identify our modus oparandi. Nigerian military is only good in carrying AK47 to harass innocent people and raping young girls and women.
“If the oil companies especially Shell and Chevron spent billions of naira to only undertake repairs of damaged oil and gas pipelines in the region, when such funds were better channeled for the payments of Bonga oil spill in 2011 and Chevron gas explosion in Koluama, Bayelsa state in 2012 would have saved them from these bombing and their present predicament would have been a thing of the past. Since they don’t want to hear, we’ll continue to break the pipelines until they do the needful for our old parents at home because that is the only language the companies and federal government hears in the country from the region.”
