 Plan to control own republic
 Lament failure to make arrest on summit of in contradiction of-Igbo ultimatum
 Threaten injury regarding oil wells owned by northerners

A coalition of Niger Delta campaigner groups rose from a meeting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State yesterday ordering all northerners to quit the oil-proficiently-to-reach region. The militants threatened to attack all oil wells owned by northerners in Niger Delta in the in front October 1, 2017.

The groups, out cold the aegis of the Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators, berated the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, Inspector General of Police, Department of State Services and the Army for not arresting those who issued an ultimatum to Igbo to leave the north.

This proceed has stoked the protest that is threatening to tear the nation apart. The giving out which has initiated a innocent intimates process may have to buildup its parleys as soon as stakeholders to avert the threats to the Nigerian bond.

At the joint meeting together as well as the Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators and teens leaders across the region to evaluation the divulge of the nation, the work uphill leaders demanded an brusque recompense of oil blocs owned by northerners to the Niger Delta people.

Among the groups and their leaders that highly thought of a joint broadcast issued after the meeting were: Gen. John Duku (Niger Delta Watchdogs); Gen. Ekpo Ekpo (Niger Delta Volunteers); Gen.

The militants along with threatened that all oil and gas companies operational in oil wells illegally owned by northerners should vacate such blocs, wells and platforms to the fore October 1, 2017.

We condemn in totality the meeting held by the Acting President gone some northern elders and youths. We see it as a grand conspiracy. A responsible giving out should have arrested those traitors, but our paperwork rather turned round to meet once them and pleaded for peace; does the Nigerian management see people from new zones as second-class citizens? Why are they more important to the Acting President, why is it that the Nigerian pain is always lackluster following it involves the northerners? We are yet watching the unfolding behavior considering operating joined, the militants said.

They said it was not surprising that the Inspector General of Police, Department of State Service and even the Army unsuccessful to arrest any of the northern youths who issued same threats for Igbo to leave the North to the front October 1, 2017.

The militants said they were adequately prepared to deem the Sovereign Republic of Niger Delta vis--vis the order of October 1, 2017, and so called vis--vis the subject of all their compatriots to remain focused, joined and remaining.

According to them, the liberation of the people of the region from the alleged slavery of Nigeria remains their primary try. We nonappearance to hermetically sealed this as a deterrent to all the northerners living in Niger Delta to quit our ablaze back October 1, 2017 as this is not just a threat. After October 1, 2017, any northerner found within the Republic of Niger Delta shall be seen as an intruder and shall be treated as such.

We moreover use this opportunity to advise oil & gas companies in our territory to shut down totaling operations, PENGASSAN and NUPENG to inform/desist their members from Niger Delta in the since October 1, 2017 or risk their lives. Our neighboring discharge loyalty a role-warfare will wonder you, they said.

The groups as well as demanded the rushed relocation of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) headquarters to Niger Delta and replacement of the Group Managing Director of NNPC behind an indigene of Niger Delta region.

According to them, all offices, boards and agencies that have anything to produce an effect once oil and gas should be relocated nimbly to Niger Delta and the entire non-Niger Delta directors, staff be replaced subsequent to the indigenes.

Nwodo, who was along surrounded by some Igbo leaders, including the former official of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Charles Soludo and Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Nsukka, Most Rev. Prof. Godfrey Onah, spoke as they arrived at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport yesterday from Abuja.
