We Have Nothing To Lose On The Bombing Of Oil Pipelines - #Militants Tell FG

Militant group, the Ultimate Warriors of Niger Delta, on Saturday, lambasted the federal government for its double standard on the issue of dialogue.

According to a statement issued by the militant group, the federal government’s double standard and lip service is worrisome, hence why oil installations are still being destroyed.

The group called on the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) to stop parading itself as the leader of militants in the Niger Delta region.

The statement reads: “We have said it before that we have nothing to lose on the bombing of oil pipelines because our mission is to ground the oil economy if our demands are not met. We have said we are doing what we are doing to prod the government to renegotiate the control of our oil resources and other related matters.

“We have watched with chagrin the recent utterance by the President (Muhammadu Buhari) and the Vice President (Yemi Osinbajo) and all we are see in them are double standard and lips service to the demand of the groups as its concerns the Niger Delta question and that is why all of our units and affiliates have not fully heeded to our ceasefire.

“Today, the president will say something, tomorrow his deputy and some of their dishonest and selfish lieutenants will contradict him and that only show how confused and unserious the government is about the problems and how to deal with them,”
