Killing of sleeping soldiers is not our style – Niger Delta Avengers


Militants suspected to be Niger Delta Avengers carried out an attack on a military houseboat in the creeks of Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta State.

The bloody attack that led to the death of about 2 soldiers and 6 civilians was however denied by the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) last night.

According to Captain Jonah Unuakhalu, the Assistant Director, Public Relations, 4 Brigade, Nigerian Army Headquarters, Benin City, Edo State, he said that; the suspected militants who were all dressed like normal commuters came in 5 speed boats mounted with 250 horse power engines to carry out the attack on Wednesday night.

The Niger Delta Avengers according to their statement as seen on Vanguard, said;

“The  Niger Delta Avengers are not involved in the attack of the military houseboat around Warri, Delta State. Killing of sleeping soldiers is not our style. We promise the world that in this process of liberating our people, not a single blood of Nigeria soldiers will be wasted despite the provocation.

“Even the inhumane Nigeria soldiers are exempted, our war is on oil installations not to take innocent lives. For the fact we can’t give life, we also don’t have the power to take any life. But we (Avengers) are assuring the families of the affected soldiers that we will bring the culprits to book.

“When it is time to face the military in combat, let the whole world know that we won’t be the ones to throw the first punch.

“This message is going to all groups parading themselves as freedom fighters. You can fight for your people without killing innocent souls. NDA has proved, we were able to drop Nigeria oil production from two million barrels to just 800,000 barrels without killing a soul.

“We are warning every group to follow our footsteps. The days of killing and kidnapping are over.”

But, early this morning, the NDA tweeted that they blew up the Ogboinbiri to Tebidaba and Clough Creek to Tebidaba Crude Oil pipelines in Bayelsa State.
