The Niger Delta Militant group, Supreme Egbesu Liberation Fighters have threatened to destroy infrastructures in Lagos & Abuja over marginalisation of their region & failing to deliver on the amnesty programme.
In a viral video released four years after they ceased fire,the group threatened to attack oil facilities while accusing the federal government of marginalising the region and failing to deliver on the amnesty programme.
A masked member of the group said: “After accepting the amnesty pact, till date, there are no schools, no potable water, no light, no hospital and access roads for our people to enjoy”.
It asked the government to allow the region to manage its resources “the way Zamfara gold mining sector is being handled by their own people”.
“Over the years, the Niger Delta people have made frantic efforts to create an enabling environment… but to our great dismay, the Nigerian government over the years has decided to handle the issues of the Niger Delta with kid gloves.
“They have betrayed the struggle and have left the people to their fate.
“Rather, what is visible is the presence of military gunboat and the numerous military personnel dispersed to the Niger Delta who are killing, raping, and maiming the innocent people of the region.”
He also complained that “no meaningful progress has been made” with the Ogoni clean-up project “because the Nigerian government has decided to place politics against the meaningful development of our people”.
