THE Akuma Strike Force Team of The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM) may have resumed its bombing of oil facilities in Delta State with its claim that at about 0400hour Monday, November 27 2016, it brought down the 42 inch delivery line operated by NPDC/ND WESTERN in Otu-Jeremi. According to a release signed by the militant group’s spokesperson, General Aldo Agbalaja, the latest bombing was to register their presence as far as the crisis in the Niger Delta region is concerned.
“In the last few weeks we have been silent and observing. The period of silence was definitely not of inactivity; as a matter of fact, it was rather a strategy session, the fruits of which shall start showing up in the coming days. However, to register our presence and jolt those probably slipping into delusion back to reality,” the group said in a release it issued to announce the havoc it has wreaked on the pipelines. “The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate has also observed the calculated psychological attack recently initiated by the Nigerian security forces against our people, believing that by pursuing and arresting our people the struggle will be defeated and our resolve would be quelled. This will not work because what motivates us is stronger than the Nigerian kind of patriotism.
Once again, we proclaim that we shall fight till the last man alive. NDGJM also said that its high command has also noticed that some people it described as “impostors have now started a move to hoodwink the federal government into believing that they have what it takes to end this campaign that we have sworn to stay committed to. These conmen, grandstanding and parading themselves as the ‘lords of Warri’, have forgotten that this campaign goes well beyond their purview or grasp.”
It, therefore, urged the federal government to be wary of who they give attention to “in the desperation to get the oil from our soil to flow unhindered. Be wary of these political jobbers, whose stock in trade has always been using the struggle to profiteer. We have severally indicated how to end this and definitely not through political jobbers and conflict merchants. If and when we have reasons to trust anybody to hold discussions with, we shall through this same medium, announce the process and the persons. This is a warning for the wise.”
