The Reformed Niger Delta Avengers RNDA in conjuction with nine other militant groups in the Niger Delta said that President Muhammadu Buhari have only four weeks to reinstate the sacked Coordinator of the Amnesty Programme and Special Adviser to the President on Niger delta, Retired General Paul Boroh or be ready for fresh attacks on oil installations and facilities across the entire length and breadth of the Niger Delta region.
The Leader of the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers RNDA, General Johnmark Ezonbi in a statement made available to Blueprint Newspaper via email after an enlarged meeting of the militant groups in Bayelsa state said it had become obvious as the group said that the federal government was toiling with the destiny of the Niger Delta region. “The federal government will hear from us at the expiration of the four weeks ultimatum as no single stone will be left un-turned as the Buhari led administration preferred to go back to the recession period where Boroh played a major role by visiting the creeks with other stakeholders to prevail on the “boys “to drop their arms”and embrace peace.
The statement read “Nothing tangible has been recorded since the coming of the present APC led federal government rather President Buhari was sacking Boroh who had succeeded in setting a template for the smooth operation of the amnesty office”.
The group said that all its striking units across the Niger Delta has been put on red alert to commence operation zero oil to cripple the economy in a well coordinated destruction of all major delivery oil pipelines after the expiration of the four weeks ultimatum without looking back.
“I want to warn that any intruder into our planned action in four weeks time if the federal government fails to reinstate General Paul Boroh will be severely dealt with without mercy because our attack will make security agencies in the creek very small “.
“We are fully ready to take on anybody as we have the instrumental of warfare that will make the biggest military might to marvel at our coordinated attacks. We are ready to dirty our rivers and creek with our oil, it is better we spill it than allow government use it to develop other parts of the country”. The statement read.
It also read that “We are not unmindful of the roles played by self styled leader of the APC in the South South region and Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi and former Governor of Bayelsa State Timipre Sylva by sponsoring falsehood against the person and office of Retired General Paul Boroh for his blunt refusal to grease their palm to the detriment of the Amnesty Program meant strictly for ex militants and agitators”.
“We have always known Rotimi Amaechi and Timipre Sylva to be anti Niger Delta since the coming on board of the President Buhari led APC government as the latter kicked against the establishment of the Nigerian Maritime University, Okerenkoko.
They stated that Boroh had made concerted efforts to put the Amnesty programme back on track with the regular training of ex militants and payment of monthly stipends without delay.
The RNDA declared Professor Charles Dokubo unfit for the job because of his age saying he has long lost touch with happenings in creeks.
