Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, has claimed responsibility for the recent attacks on oil installations and on residents of Arepo communities and others in Lagos and Ogun States.

In a statement issued by the group's spokesman, Mudoch Agbinibo, it accused the military of killing innocent women and children in the July 28 aerial bombardment of the militants' hideouts in Arepo by the Air Force, saying the attacks will not stop them from fighting for their people.

The group also claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari is against calls for the restructuring of Nigeria.

“The Nigeria Military is playing some war game on some illegal bunkering camps and showing video of how they carry out the bombardment. That is so unprofessional, don’t think they can intimidate the NDA with those jet bombers," the statement said.

“They can deploy fourth generation jet-bombers that will not stop us from fighting for our people. We challenge the military to share with the public the militants killed in the so-called air strike.

“We are very sure they won’t share the images of militants killed because none was killed except innocent women and children.”

“The call for restructuring of Nigeria has gone beyond the NDA. The only group of persons against the restructuring is the Villa. The Federal government should just listen to the voice of the citizens instead of playing the deaf ear game.”
