We didn’t attack military houseboat – Niger Delta Avengers

The Niger Delta Avengers, a militant group attacking oil
installations in Bayelsa and its environs have disassociated
itself from the attack on a military houseboat in which two
soldiers and six civilians were killed on Wednesday.
The militant group condemned the killing, calling on all other
‘freedom fighters’ to desist from bloodshed and kidnapping
while agitating for their demands.
A statement posted on the group’s website held that “killing of
sleeping soldiers is not the group’s style.
The statement signed by Brid.Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, the
group’s self-acclaimed spokesman said: “The Niger Delta
Avengers were not involved in the attack of the Military
houseboat around Warri, Delta State. Killing of sleeping
Soldiers is not our style. We promise the world that in this
Process of liberating our People, not a single blood of Nigeria
soldiers will be wasted despite the provocation.
“Even the inhumane Nigeria soldiers are exempted, our war is
on oil installations not to take innocent lives. For the fact we
can’t give life, we also don’t have the power to take any life.
But we (Avengers) are assuring the families of the affected
soldiers that we will bring the culprits to book.
“When it’s time to face the military in combat let the whole
world know that we won’t be the ones to throw the first punch.
“This message is going to all groups parading themselves as
freedom fighters. You can fight for your people without killing
innocent souls NDA have proved it. We were able to drop
Nigeria Oil production from 2million Barrels to just 800,000
barrels without killing a soul.
“We are warning every group to follow our footsteps. The days
of Killing and Kidnapping are over.”
In recent times, the Niger Delta Avengers have wreaked a lot
of havoc on the oil installations in the country, bringing its oil
production to its lowest in 20 years. They have blown up a
number of pipelines, the most recent of which are Chevron’s
Bibi Oil Well RMP 23 and RMP which were blown up in the
early hours of Wednesday.
