Niger Delta Avengers demand release of corpses of pro-Biafra agitators, threatens more attacks


The Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, has demanded that the federal government immediately release corpses of Biafra supporters allegedly killed on Monday by security agents or risk more attacks from them as from Friday, June 3.

The militants further said they will retaliate against the security agents over what they described as “unprovoked massacre of peace-loving Biafra people” in Onitsha, Anambra State.

In an ultimatum issued on Wednesday, via an on­line platform, the militants said the decision was taken after an emergency meeting of leaders of the various militant groups in the region.

Representatives of Niger Delta People’s Democratic Front, NDPDF, and Concerned Militant Leaders, CML, Precious Iyoyo (General Playboy) and General Ben respectively, pointed out that the brutality of security agents against the citizens was disheartening.

The Niger Delta militants claimed they witnessed how members of the Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Biafra Independent Movement, BIM, were killed in unprovoked circumstances.

General Playboy said, “So many Niger Delta militants witnessed what happened in Onitsha.

“We are too pained to keep quiet. If the Federal Government fails to release them by Friday, June 3, 2016, they will hear from us from Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Akwa Ibom, Cross River and Edo states.”
