Amid reports that the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) have agreed to a ‘ceasefire’ to allow for a dialogue with the Federal Government, its sister militant group, the Adaka Boro Avengers (ADA) has said it would not engage in any dialogue with the government, and vowed to go ahead with the October 1 declaration of the Niger Delta Republic.
Spokesperson of the group, Edmos Ayayeibo, who stated this in a statement yesterday, said all arrangements have been concluded for the success of the historic declaration, stressing, “there is no going back this time round.”
“We the Adaka Boro Avengers are throwing our weight behind the Niger Delta Avengers on the declaration of Niger Delta Republic come October 1. Our earlier abortion of the declaration was at the instance of the Niger Delta Republic. This time round, there’s no going back and Nigerians should expect a different country call Niger Delta Republic.
“Arrangements have been concluded for the declaration. The people of the Niger Delta region are tired of President Muhammadu Buhari and his APC misrule, and we have decided to go and no one can stop us,” the statement read.
The group dismissed any possible threat to its ambition, stressing, “the matter at hand is more than any police force or military personnels.”
It said it had concluded arrangements to launch the Niger Delta radio station in two weeks time and added that it would work with Biafra agitators to actualize their dream.
to run a continuous broadcast ahead of the October 1 declaration.
“We’re also using this medium to call on our neighbours, Biafrans to use this opportunity to achieve their dream because all arrangements have been concluded for the success. We are also using this opportunity to tell the Federal government of Nigeria that we ADAKA BORO AVENGERS are not ready for any form of dialogue.
“Two weeks from today the Nigerian nation will hear our live broadcast from our radio station, the Niger Delta radio station, which will continue broadcast until the October 1 declaration. October 1, is a day we have set aside for history to be made in the world. So the Nigerian government should not try to stop us, because if they do, heads will roll and still history will be made.
“So, we are not afraid of anyone, police or military personnels, because our foreign backers are currently fighting with so many countries in the world without fear.
“Lastly, the whole nation will be destabilised. What the Niger Delta leaders should do now is to call their people in other states to return home immediately. Only restructuring of Nigerian nation will stop our October 1 declaration,” the statement concluded.
