Niger Delta Revolutionary Crusaders, NDRC, a militant group, has said it will resume attacks on oil facilities on September 31, 2017. The group, in a statement by its spokesman, W O I Izon Ebi, also urged the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, led by Edwin Clark, to stop all talks with the Federal Government. “We have resolved and are more determined to use all necessary means to take back our heritage by stopping all oil and gas exploration and exportation in Niger Delta come September 31, 2017.
“Our elders and distinguished personalities of PANDEF have tried in their advocacy. We realize that the balancing act of being elder statesmen and resource control advocates can be a very touchy act. That is why our goal is in consonance with the vision of Niger Delta’s emerging youth leaders in the clamour for resource control.
“The Nigerian nation should be grateful to PANDEF and most especially the acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, who was so sincere in trying to do things in line with the best global practices of this 21st century, but the Nigerian elite and state, who feed fat on the resources of the Niger Delta do not care about the plight of the Niger Delta people,” it said.
The group also accused Usani Uguru Usani, Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, of being insensitive to the plight of the people of the region. NDRC was said it was speaking on behalf of the present agitators, who jointly signed the agreement with the Federal Government to observe the ceasefire in return for a holistic solution for the problem facing the region.
