The Niger Delta Liberation Force (NDLF) has said that militants have no reason to be afraid of President Muhammadu Buhari because the president is not God.
The NDLF also said that the bombing of pipelines in the Niger Delta isn’t over yet.
The group’s comments were contained in a statement released by its spokesman, Mark Anthony, according to The Cable.
The statement reads:
“We do not condemn the current bombing because when we surrendered, we told the world that bombing of pipelines was not over yet. Those bombing pipelines in Delta state should not behave like cowards if they are truly fighting the interest of Niger Delta.
“They should be bold enough to come out. When we were bombing, our leader General John Togo did not hide his face. We dealt with the Nigerian army, and we were not hiding.
“They should not hide their identity. Buhari is not God and they should not be scared of him. JTF should not attack and arrest innocent people in Ijaw communities, they should go for the real saboteurs.
“Although, we had told former President Goodluck Jonathan that Nigerian army cannot protect pipelines in the creek. The current amnesty chairman Paul Boroh does not know the boys in Niger Delta. He is not in touch with Niger Delta major ex-agitators. Buhari should sack him immediately and appoint another chairman like Kingsley Kuku who knows the boys in the creek. This will help the current oil war.”
Buhari had earlier said that his government would deal with militants the same way it had dealt with Boko Haram terrorists.
