Group Of Militants Vow To Break Nigeria; To Launch 6 Missiles

Oil installations in the Niger Delta have suffered attacks in recent weeks as militant group the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) blew up pipelines in the Niger Delta. As the security forces try to stop the NDA, other militant groups are emerging.

A consolidated group of militants under the aegis of Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF), today threatened to launch six missiles in the Niger Delta region.

According to the group, it would commence the testing of its six missiles on June 7 and the testing would last for three days. It warned that no airplanes should fly in and out of the country within the period as the weapons are capable of hitting any object despite its size, The Nation reports.

In a statement, JNDLF said it took the decision to further wreak havoc in the Niger Delta region, in a meeting attended in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, by its commanders.

It said that Bayelsa State is the command base of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) and not Delta State. The group warned the Commissioner of Information and Orientation in Bayelsa, Mr. Jonathan Obuebite to stop criticizing NDA.

The group further said the highest organ of JNDLF, the Joint Revolutionary Council (JRC) concluded that the launching of the missiles would signal its readiness for the final breakup of the country.

Meanwhile, the Niger Delta Avengers today blew up the Ogboinbiri to Tebidaba and Clough Creek to Tebidaba Crude Oil pipelines in Bayelsa State.

A statement by the group said the attack was in line with its “promise to all international Oil companies and Indigenous Oil Companies that Nigeria Oil production will be Zero”.
