Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has vowed to declare the region a republic on October 1, 2016, if President Muhammadu Buhari fails to restructure the country.

The group made the threat via a statement issued by spokesman, Mudoch Agbinibo on Thursday, August 18, 2016.

The statement reads:

“Our prayer for Buhari and the Northern hypocrite (Northern Governors) is that oil should be found in commercial quantity in the North, so they can let the Niger Delta go.”

“The Buhari Led government has failed Nigerians with their misdirected policies that has divided the country, as such nobody wants to be part of that failed state not even the Niger Delta.”

 “The October 1st, declaration of independence is still sacrosanct, If the Nigerian government fails to retrace its step by restructuring this country. We want to warn the general public that those using NDA to defraud people days of reckoning is close.”
