Militant group, Niger Delta Sea Commandos (NDSC) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to stop begging and start making moves to negotiate with militants to stop attacks in the region.

The comment follows Buhari’s plea to the militants to stop destroying oil installations in the Niger Delta.

NDSC made the call via a statement issued by spokesman, Major Osama Blatter. It reads:

As members of Sea Commandos, we cannot take Buhari’s plea serious and we are running out of patience. The issue is when he will start his dialogue.

When will Nigeria grant Niger Delta autonomous state? Buhari should not play politics with Niger Delta’s demands. If he plays with us, we will ground his government. Delay is dangerous. We are not interested in any plea.

Who told Buhari that Nigerians do not have other country than Nigeria? Niger Deltans are not part of Nigeria he is referring to because we belong to Niger Delta Republic.

Buhari should lead the negotiation team, we want him in the creeks, Buhari should not expect our oil to stabilize Nigeria’s economy, that is a thing of the past. Since he came back, we have not heard anything from him about the expired two-week ceasefire, he has not announced any extension, which is why we say that he is pretending.  We are warning that we can no longer wait, we will commence attack any moment from now.
