Stop asking Buhari for peanuts, Fight for Biafra – BNL to Niger Delta Avengers

Biafra Nations League, BNL, has told a militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, to fight for the creation of Biafra instead of asking Buhari administration for amnesty and peanuts.

Niger Delta Avengers, a militant group which wreaked havoc on the region during President Muhammadu Buhari’s first tenure, had on Saturday announced its return saying it had launched ‘Operation Humble’ aiming at crippling the economy as it did in the past.

But in a statement signed by its Head of Operations, Henry Edet, the BNL said that most Niger Deltans now see militancy as an opportunity to get favour from the Federal Government.

“We advised the Bakassi militants as at then to publicly define their struggle different from Niger Delta militant struggle when we noticed that some elders were trying to hijack it for political reasons.”

BNL recalled how some Niger Delta elders especially those in Rivers State and Bayelsa State led by Ijaw leader, Edwin Clark hijacked the Niger Delta course to seek oil wells in Abuja, “which after they were promised by the FG, the Avengers surrendered.”

They advised Niger Delta youths to stop playing ethnic politics and join the fight for Biafra Republic, adding that resource control under Nigeria will not be possible.
