Niger Delta Militants Threaten To Attack Abuja, Lagos [Video]

By  | 

Some Niger Delta militants have threatened to attack major cities in the country.

The group, ‘The Supreme Egbesu Liberation Fighters’, said it would target infrastructure in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja and commercial hub, Lagos.

In a video that was shared by AIT television, the militants issued their threat. A number of heavily armed men dressed in military uniform with covered faces could be seen in the video, as one of the militants read from a paper.

They said the Federal Government had abandoned the South-South region, adding that the oil-producing states are without basic amenities such as roads and schools.

The militants said as part of measures they would employ to register their displeasure, they plan to destroy infrastructures in Abuja and Lagos as well as oil facilities both onshore and offshore.

They decried the state of the Ogoni clean-up project, saying government places politics above the people.

“The Nigerian government over the years has decided to handle the issues of the Niger Delta with kid gloves. They have betrayed the struggle and have left the people to their fate.”

They added: “Due to the insensitive nature of the Nigerian government on issues that are bothering its citizens, today the country is in turmoil. Protest everywhere and strike in several sectors. The #EndSARS protest that took place almost crippled the nation’s economy. It is amongst such ill treatments that gave birth to this unprecedented protest.

“Nigerian government ought to give her citizens good governance. Today, the various zones in the country are calling for division of the country called Nigeria.

“So as a group determined to give total liberation of her people, we will destroy all the oil facilities both onshore and offshore in no distant time. We will be seen to be crippling the Nigerian economy in no distant time as well.”
