Niger Delta Avengers List 10-Point Demands From FG To Stop Bombings

Militants (1)The new face of militancy in the Niger-Delta region, the Niger Delta Avengers, has claimed responsibility for the bombing of Chevron oil facilities at Escravos in Warri, Delta State on Friday, threatening to blow up all oil facilities in the region, including offshore platforms.
The group said it had perfected plans to bomb the Bonga Fpso, the EA Field and tank farms, Bonny tank farm, Escravos tank farm and Forcados tank farm if their 10-point demands were not met by the federal government.
Among the demands by the Avengers is the unconditional release of the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPoB) Mr Nnamdi Kanu and the immediate implementation of the report of the 2014 National Conference.
The spokesperson of the Avengers, Mudoch Agbinibo, said the group would not stop its bombing operations until its demands are met.
The 10-point demand contained in a press release on the militant group’s website, said NNPC crude and gas pipelines feeding the Warri and Kaduna refineries including the gas line feeding the Lagos and Abuja electricity power supply would be cut off.
It also said President Muhammadu Buhari, the DSS and former Bayelsa governor, Timipre Sylva, should apologise to the people of the Niger Delta and family of the late Chief DSP Alamieyesegha over his death.
According to the group, ownership of oil blocks must reflect 60% for people from oil producing regions and 40% for the non-oil producing regions.
Among other things, the group said the only Nigerian maritime university located in Okerenkoko, Delta State, must commence the 2015/2016 academic session while the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amechi, should apologize to the Ijaws and the entire Niger Delta people for his statements about the location of the university.
“The Ogoniland and indeed all oil polluted lands in the Niger Delta must be cleaned up and compensation be paid to all oil producing communities, Mr Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB must be released unconditionally as the court said, the Niger Delta Amnesty programme must be well funded and let it continue to run effectively, all APC members that are indicted in any corruption related cases should be made to face trial like the PDP members and all oil multi-nationals and foreign investors should observe this ultimatum, as their business interest in the country must be first target”, the statement said.
