The Militant group, Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) has threatened to blow up six flow stations in Bayelsa state.
Over the reported refusal of President Mohammadu Buhari to address the issues of development affecting the Niger Delta region, the Militant group, Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) has threatened to blow up six flow stations in Bayelsa state.
In a statement issued after its meeting in Yenagoa, the militant group led by Generals; Akotebe Darikoro (commander, general duties), Torunanaowei Latei (creeks network coordinator), Agbakakuro Owei-tauro (pipelines bleeding expert) and Pulokiri Ebiladei (intelligence bureau), said the President Buhari-led administration has not taken any step to demonstrate its sincerity to tackle the Niger Delta problems.
The group which had earlier claimed it shelved its plans to fire missiles at national buildings in Lagos, Abuja and Kaduna due to appeal from the FG and the International Community, commended Minister of State for Petroluem, Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu for “the bold steps he personally took to resolve the injustice created and sponsored by the wicked companies and government in Nigeria.”
The group however regretted that the “initiative he took has been relegated to the background by the self acclaimed Minister of Petroleum Resources, Muhammadu Buhari who has no knowledge about the suffering of the people in the Niger Delta region.
According to Daily Sun, the militant group also told Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State to pay civil servants in the state or face their wrath, adding that if Dickson cannot pay workers salaries from what has accrued to the state, he should resign to avoid bloodshed.
