The Niger Delta Avengers militant group has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to visit the region and see the damage oil companies are causing their host communities.

The group said this in a statement signed by its spokesman, Brig. Gen Moduch Agbinibo, and published on its website on Saturday, June 25.

The militants also want the President to "borrow a leaf from PM David Cameron, call for a referendum and let Nigerians decides like they did to vote you into Power."

"The Nigeria President Buhari should visit  Ugborodo host to Chevron  crude oil Export terminal/EGTL gas plant, Ogulagha host to Shell Forcados Crude Oil Export terminal/tank farm, Bonny Island host to Shell Bonny Crude Oil Export terminal/NLNG gas terminal, Brass host to Agip/ENI export terminal, Ibeno host to ExxonMobil Qua Iboe crude export terminal.

"These are just the export terminals not talking about the numerous oil and gas flowstations and the oil Wells that criss cross the length and breadth of the Niger delta.

"Mr. President come and see for yourself what the host communities are going through in the hands of Nigeria government and the multinationals," the militant group said.
