Militants insist Hausas, Yorubas must vacate Niger Delta on October 1

A Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators on Sunday restated its earlier warning that Yorubas and Northerners residing in Niger Delta must vacate the region before October 1.
Following the quit notice by Arewa youths asking Igbos to vacate the North, some agitators had recently demanded that Yorubas and Hausas should vacate the oil rich region by October 1.

However, Arewa youths have withdrawn the quit notice after claiming to have carried out consultations.

But the agitators said they stood by their earlier decision.

They also condemned the call for the arrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

In a statement, the agitators insisted that the call for Kanu’s arrest was used to replace the withdrawal of the quit notice earlier issued to Igbo people living in the North.

They maintained that government and security agencies headed by northerners ignited the quit notice fire.

Those who signed the statement include, John Duku of the Niger Delta Watchdogs and Convener of the Coalition; Ekpo Ekpo of the Niger Delta Volunteers; Osarolor Nedam of Niger Delta Warriors; and Henry Okon Etete of the Niger Delta Peoples Fighters.

Others are Asukwo Henshaw of the Bakassi Freedom Fighters; Ibinabo Horsfall of the Niger Delta Movement for Justice; Duke Emmanson of Niger Delta Fighters Network; Inibeghe Adams of Niger Delta Freedom Mandate and Ibinabo Tariah of the Niger Delta Development Network.

The statement reads in part, “It is our avowed determination to ensure that the Niger Delta remains focussed on our demands for a total overhaul of the basis of our unity. We have therefore resolved to stand by our previous demands as follows:

“That the northerners and Yoruba should leave the Niger Delta before October 1, 2017; return of all the oil blocs own by northerners and Yoruba to Niger Delta people. Relocation of the oil and gas companies headquarters to their operational base as well as relocation of NNPC headquarters, all other offices that has to do with oil and gas; replacement of the Group Managing Director of NNPC.

“We reaffirm our resolve for the declaration of the Niger Delta Republic on 1st October, 2017. We reaffirm our resolve to resume attack on all the oil blocs that are owned by the northerners and Yoruba in the Niger Delta from September 10, 2017.

“We hereby call on PENGASSAN, NUPENG and international communities to withdraw their members/expatriates from such oil wells/blocs as we shall not spare any person found in such platforms, including NNPC offices in Abuja and Lagos, oil companies’ headquarters outside the Niger Delta region.”
