Militants threaten to declare Niger Delta Republic today, military on high alert

Ijaw Militant group, the Adaka Boro Avengers (ABA), have
threatened to declare the independent Republic of Niger Delta
today August 1st. The group in a statement released last week,
said after holding consultation with other militant groups in the
region, they have concluded arrangements to declare the Niger
Delta region as an independent republic from today August 1.

The group in the statement signed by its spokesperson, Edmos
Ayayeibo, ordered people from other regions who are residing in
Niger Delta to vacate their homes before today “If they refuse to heed to our warning, we will use so many as example in the Niger Delta region on the due date.”

Reacting to the threat, the Nigerian military through the Joint Task
Force Commander in the Niger Delta, codenamed Operation Delta
Safe, Rear Admiral Joseph Okojie, dismissed the threat of the group, saying the military would not fail to fulfill their responsibility to protect lives, property and the territorial integrity of the country.

He asked the people of the region to go about their normal duties.
“This is to reassure the good people of the Niger Delta that Operation Delta Safe is firmly on the ground to protect them” he said.
