Militants terrorising the Niger Delta region have surrendered their weapons in Rivers state,
The militants who accepted amnesty gave up their guns to the state government on Tuesday, November 15.
This move is coming on the same day Niger Delta Avengers, another notorious militant group claimed responsibility for the attack on three truck lines operated by Agip, Oando and Shell.
The group said: “At about 11:45pm on November 15, 2016, our Elite Strike Team 03 struck Nembe 1, 2 and 3 truck line operated by Agip, Oando and Shell with supply capacity of 300,000 barrel per day to Bonny export terminal in Bayelsa state”.
“This is in response to the so-called ‘Operations Sharkbite’, an art of terrorism commissioned by the tyranny of the Nigerian navy establishment and orchestrated by some elements of the ruling political class to continuously undermine any effort by the Nigerian state to address the legitimate demands of the people of the Niger Delta, and a conspiracy to bloat the accounts of some security contractors and conflict merchants within the party structure of the APC.
“We are only reiterating our strong resolve that, time is running against the Nigerian government, that there is doom ahead. The Nigerian government needs our cooperation more than we need the government.”
