The Adaka Boro Avengers (ABA) have called on oil companies working in the Niger Delta to leave the region within seven days.

They also called on the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) evacuate the Niger Delta.

According to Daily Post, the President of NUPENG, Igwe Achese, told the Federal Government to engage ex-militants as security consultants to ensure the safety of crude oil pipelines in the region.

The militant group also vowed to attack NUPENG staff, adding that Achese insulted them with his comment.

The group’s spokesman, Edmos Ayayeibo said “We want all Nigerians to know how we will surprise the President of the Nigeria union of petroleum and Natural gas workers (NUPENG) Mr, Igwe Achese on how he want to cause crisis in the Niger Delta region.

“By asking the Federal government of Nigeria to engage the service of a security outfit managed by some ex-militants in the Niger Delta for the security of crude oil facilities in region, his words is a slap to the the Niger Delta Agitators.

“We shall let him know that the Niger Delta is not a place for him to set fire. Rather we will go after the lives of his workers and the so called oil installations in the region. This is a sound warning to all multinational oil companies operating in region to the region for their own interest for now, until matters are resolved in the region.

“Failure to adhere to this warning we will go on rampage for the total destruction of workers and oil installations they will have their selves to be blamed.”

This is coming after Bakassi Strike Force (BSF), surrendered part of its arms to show its desire to lay down their arms if the Federal Government addressed their concerns.
