A new militant group, the Ultimate Warriors of Niger Delta, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of double standard, and vowed to totally shut down the country’s economy.
“We have watched with chagrin the recent utterance by the President (Muhammadu Buhari) and the Vice President (Yemi Osinbajo) and all we 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,” the Warriors said in a statement.
“Today, the president will say something, tomorrow his deputy and some of their dishonest and selfish lieutenants will contradict him and that only shows how confused and unserious the government is about the problems and how to deal with them.”
It added that it has nothing to lose by blowing up oil installations.
“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,” it said.
