*We will prevent President Buhari from exporting crude oil from the region—Avengers


Alhaji Mujahid Dokubo Asari , an ex-militant , has broken his silence on the ongoing hostilities in the Niger Delta region , warning against his inclusion in the team in the planned negotiations between the Federal Government and the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).

Asari who was former national president of Ijaw Youth Congress and also the leader of Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Front (NDPSF) vowed never to negotiate with the government of President Mohammadu Buhari and warned against associating his name in the matter, stating categorically that he had not appointed anyone to be his representatives.

He also accused the President Buhari administration of waging a genocide war against the Ijaw nation, saying that the President was paying lip service to the negotiation plan.

Asari Dokugbo , whose views are contained in a public disclaimer he published on his Facebook wall on Sunday night, stated that he believed in the cause of Ijaw Nation, Niger Delta Region and the United States of Biafra(USB).

He warned that ” for every action there must be an equal and opposite reaction….You can’t sow to the winds and expect not to harvest a whirlwind in return.”

The former warlord stated that he would never condemn the activities of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) saying that unless there was a Sovereign National Conference, (SNC) was convoked on issues of Ijaw, Niger Delta region and USB, and a plebiscite that would be monitored by the United Nations (UN)there would be no peace in the mentioned territories.

In his Facebook wall Asari wrote: “The public should note that I,Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari,Alabo Edi Abali -Abala Buruburu 1 of Kalabari had not entered,directed,appointed or delegated any person or group of persons to negotiate or enter into dialogue with any president,vice president,governor,minister,national security adviser, any committee or institution in furtherance of the Nigerian states pretension to the pursuance of peace in the occupied Ijaw,Niger Delta Region and The United States of Biafra(USB).

“Therefore, anybody who had presented himself/herself claiming to me or represent me in any manner of discussion, fora or conference in furtherance of this pretentious negotiation or dialogue is a fraud and therefore should not be accorded any recognition as a person representing me, the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Front and Niger Delta Peoples Volunteer Force.

“I am convinced and firmly believe that the occupation gambari and their collaborators in the Nigerian state led by General Muhammadu Buhari is not interested in any or in any type of peace in Ijaw, the Niger Delta Region,

In the Territories of the United States of Biafra or even in any part of Nigeria. “The body language of general Muhammadu Buhari is to carry out a genocide and a pogrom against the Ijaw,Niger Delta and the United States of Biafra(USB)

Meanwhile , reports credited to Vanguard have it that the Niger Delta Avengers will prevent President Muhammadu Buhari from exporting crude oil from the region.

The militants who have been unrepentant with their vandalisation of oil installations and pipelines in the Niger Delta region are roaring that since the president has refused to have a real dialogue with stakeholders in the region, they’ll keep stopping the president’s plans.

In fact, they have threatened that their struggle has entered an advanced phase since the president has showed that he prefers to win the battle and lose the war.

The Avengers denied the belief that they are being sponsored by ex-militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo (recently nominated by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) as a member of its Aaron 2 Negotiating Team).

Another militant group, Niger Delta Revolutionary Crusaders (NDRC) has also declared that it would readily fight the Nigerian government as well as Saudi Arabia mercenaries being allegedly engaged over the natural resources of their people just as the Ijaw People Development Initiative (IPD) are insisting that the people must be allowed to make their choice
