We promise the world that in this process of liberating our people, not a single blood of Nigeria soldiers will be wasted despite the provocation.
NDA also said it is not in their character to kill innocent Nigerians in the pursuit of their agenda for the liberation of the region..
They also promised to bring those responsible for the killing of the soldiers to book.
A statement signed by the group’s spokesperson, Brig. Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, said:
The Niger Delta Avengers were not involved in the attack of the Military houseboat around Warri, Delta State. Killing of sleeping Soldiers is not our style.
We promise the world that in this Process of liberating our People, not a single blood of Nigeria soldiers will be wasted despite the provocation.
Even the Inhumane Nigeria soldiers are exempted, our war is on Oil installations not to take innocent lives. For the fact we can’t give Life, we also don’t have the power to take any life.
But we (Avengers) are assuring the Families of the affected soldiers that we will bring the culprits to book.
When it’s time to face the military in combat let the whole world know that we won’t be the ones to throw the first Punch.
This message is going to all groups parading themselves as freedom fighters. You can fight for your people without killing innocent souls NDA have proved. we were able to drop Nigeria Oil production from 2 million Barrels to just 800,000 barrels without killing a soul.
We are warning every group to follow our footsteps. The days of Killing and Kidnapping are over.
