A coalition of Niger Delta militants on Wednesday said they were returning to the creeks to disrupt oil production in the Niger Delta.The position of the militants followed Tuesday’s raid of the Abuja home of the former Federal Commissioner for Information, Chief Edwin Clark.

The policemen said they acted on information that arms and ammunition were stored in the house.

However, the information turned out to be false.

Reacting to the development in a statement on Wednesday, the militants said they were also going to breach the ceasefire agreement with the government and demanded for the restructuring of the country.

The statement was signed by General John Duku for Niger Delta Watchdogs and convener, Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators; General Ekpo Ekpo for Niger Delta Volunteers; General Osarolor Nedam for Niger Delta Warriors; Major General Henry Okon Etete for Niger Delta Peoples Fighters; Major General Asukwo Henshaw for Bakassi Freedom Fighters; Major General Ibinabo Horsfall for Niger Delta Movement for Justice; Major General Duke Emmanson for Niger Delta Fighters Network; Major General Inibeghe Adams for Niger Delta Freedom Mandate; Major General Abiye Tariah for Niger Delta Development Network; Major General Joshua Ebere for Renewed Movement for Emancipation of the Niger Delta; Major General Jeremiah Anthony of Movement for Actualization of Niger Delta Republic; Major Francis Okoroafor of Niger Delta Freedom Redemption Army; and Colonel Nelson Okochi Walter for Niger Delta Liberty Organization.

The statement reads in full: “At the general assembly meeting of the Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators, we viewed, analyzed and also condemned in strongest terms the unwarranted invasion of the Abuja home of Niger Delta leader and elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark.

“This development is one in the series of plots to harass people in the Southern and Middle Belt Forum.

“Our intelligence further revealed that some of the people under the government watch-list that would either be assassinated or framed up are Obong Victor Attah, Dr. Alfred Mulade, Air Commodore Idongesit Nkanga, retd, Senator Bassey Henshaw, Mr. Yinka Odumakin, Prof. Chigozie Ogbu and Dr. Isuwa Dogo and others for attempting to stand against the killings across the country as well as their stance on restructuring.

“The recent police action and attempt on the life of the Niger Delta leader is a wakeup call for action, we cannot continue to watch this continue.

“We also condemned the statements made by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, in respect of the restructuring of the country.

“After extensive deliberation on these issues, we hereby issue an ultimatum that any oil company that fails to relocate its headquarters to the Niger Delta between now and December 2018 should stop operation and vacate the Niger Delta or face the consequences.

“The refusal of the President to sign the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill into law is viewed as an attempt to forcibly control Niger Delta resources by proxy. And we advise Mr. President to have a rethink on this issue.

“According to reports, the President refused to sign the bill for fear that; it would weaken his power as the Minister of Petroleum Resources; his Ministers he consulted over the bill advised him against giving his assent as the Petroleum Regulatory Commission would then have powers to check his excesses, and the fiscal content” of the bill would be subject to litigation.

“The coalition wishes to state here clearly that we had fulfilled our part by maintaining total peace and ceasefire in the Niger Delta since 2017 as advised by Niger Delta elders and leaders, the oil output during the period has increased tremendously.

“However, the federal government has been playing politics with the Niger Delta people. We, hereby, officially announce that our cease fire ends today and we are returning to the creeks.

“We assure the Presidency that with just one month of our operation, the oil output will return to 200 barrels per day; we shall crush anything that crosses our path” said the millitants.
