Why we won’t allow Buhari to export oil in Niger Delta – Avengers explain

The Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, weekend, said since President Muhammadu Buhari had decided to shun the demand for legitimate dialogue with militants and stakeholders on the Niger Delta question, it would continue to encumber all avenues by him to export crude oil from the region.

Avengers, in an interview, disclosed that the struggle has entered a new phase with Buhari’s disposition of winning the battle and losing the war.

It also denied the widespread belief that ex-militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo, recently nominated by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, as a member of its Aaron 2 Negotiating Team, was the sponsor of Avengers.

This came as another militant group, Niger Delta Revolutionary Crusaders, NDRC, declared that it was ready to fight government and the Saudi Arabia mercenaries it was allegedly engaging over the God-given resources of Ijaw people, while the Ijaw People Development Initiative, IPD, insisted that the way out was to conduct a referendum for the people to make their choice.

In a related development, a group, the Toru-Ebe State Creation Movement, said the quick fix to the ongoing bombings was for the federal government to create Toru-Ebe state for the Ijaw in the western flank of Niger Delta inhabiting Edo, Delta and Ondo states.



  1. This thug will meet their waterloo soon. It will be a shame for the government to negotiate thief and economy saboteur.

  2. Stupid idiots called NDA who sees carrying arms as the only business of enriching themselves. The only true agitators i know are late Ken Saro wiwa& Boro. All the rest, from Asari Dokubo, Tompolo, Boyloaf, etc, and now NDA are just thugs and hungry militants fighting for their selfish gains. Niger Delta People and the Ijaw nation should open their eyes and start thinking well rather than allow miscreants to destroy their land the more

  3. Do not negotiate with an evil empire. You will be dining with the devil. Let Buhari go and use his cows and develop 97% of those that voted for him. He should leave the 5% that didn’t vote for him alone with their oil. Why does he want to steal from the 5% to develop 97%? I’m surprised that Buhari is an irresponsible thief. The Avengers must be given Biafran Nobel Prize!

  4. For those who love the Niger Delta, there is a better way to give the zone the best it can have. It would be a shame if the entire region is turned to a wasteland on account of oil which is already getting progressively worthless, when coordinated collaboration between the states in the region can win a legislative right to develop the waterways and ports thereby bringing the shipping industry into their own domain.
    Oil exploration and poor industry regulation has already devastated the ecology as local leaders preferred personal settlements to ensuring clean industry practices. Violence can only worsen the situation and the people being supposedly protected are the ones who suffer. Please involve some constructive thinking in every process.
