NEWS FLASH: Buhari Responds to Niger Delta Avengers, Saying New Threats Aren’t Necessary

The threat by the Niger Delta Avengers to resume hostilities has prompted President Muhammadu Buhari to respond.

The group accused the Federal Government of failing to satisfy its demand in a statement released on Saturday.
The extremist organization promised to strike oil installations and politicians as part of “Operation Humble,” which was unveiled today.
It also approved a vote of no confidence in Chief Edwin Clark’s Pan Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF).
On Sunday, Buhari said he had addressed most of the points presented by the militants through his spokesman, Femi Adesina.
“The media was flooded with threats and demands by a group called the Niger Delta Avengers to engage in economic sabotage by attacking important oil and gas sites unless specific demands, including Niger Delta development and Federation restructuring, were met,” Adesina said in a statement.
