A Niger Delta militant group, ‘Movement for the Emancipation and the Defence of the Niger Delta’, (MEND), has reacted to the recent threat by ‘Fulani Jihadist’.
MEND vowed to launch what it called a disastrous reprisal on the faceless ‘Fulani Jihadist’ group which threatened to invade and bomb Asaba, the state capital and Agbor.
In a statement by the group, they promised to take ten lives if Fulani if one soul from any part of Niger Delta is touched.
“ATTENTION! ATTENTION!! ATTENTION!!!
RESPONSE TO THE FULANI THREAT TO OKOWA ON OPEN GRAZING BAN BY THE SOUTHERN GOVERNORS.
The attention of “The Movement for the Emancipation and the Defence of the Niger Delta” has been brought to the threat of some Fulani terrorists who have given a 3 days warning to the Governor of Delta State because of his support for the ban of open grazing across the Southern State.
We also saw your taking responsibility for an explosion at the Secretariat in Asaba.
We are warning that if your threat is made to come to fulfilment, No Fulani Fulani will ever exist across the Niger Delta and all oil facilities linked to a Fulani will be brought down. If one soul is lost, Ten Fulani souls will pay for it. If one Facility is destroyed, Ten Fulani facilities will be destroyed. We will respond proportionately ten times whatever you give, the corresponding response will not be limited to the Delta, It may be with your politicians or with your rulers.
We will launch three rocket launchers and ballistic missiles at any facility of our choice as a warning in seven days if you make bold your threats.
We don’t make cheap our threats. We have shutdown the country and we can at anytime shut you down. We are the Niger Delta, We stand for the interest of the Niger Delta and we will not allow any coward threaten us. We fight without running.”
