Niger Delta Avengers returns; threatens Federal Government to cripple Nigeria’s economy

A militant group in Nigeria’s oil-rich southern Niger Delta, Niger Delta Avengers on Saturday, June 26, announced its return.

It could be recalled that the group was a force to reckon with during the first tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari. Its activities at the time crippled the economy of the country.

Announcing its return in a statement on Saturday, CRIMECHANNELS learnt that the militant group said it had launched ‘Operation Humble’, an operation, according to it aimed at crippling the economy as it did during the first 4 years of Buhari’s tenure.

The group also promised to deal with some Political leaders who are working with the Federal Government to undermine the Niger Delta region.

The statement reads, “It is disheartening that despite being the economic backbone and having resolved to maintain the peaceful environment for the smooth operations of the oil multinationals whose proceeds the country cling unto for economic survival, the Niger Delta and the South-South remain the most underdeveloped, with our needs and interests undermined by the failed Nigerian State.”
