Militants threaten to blow oil lines over Buhari's request to World Bank to focus on the North

Yong Kim, president of the World Bank Group, that President Muhammadu Buhari allegedly requested the bank should concentrate its effort on the north, a coalition of agitators in the Niger Delta has threatened to stop further exploration and exportation of oil from the region.

The groups, Niger Delta Revolutionary Crusaders, NDRC and 21st Century Youths of Niger Delta, said it has set off programmed attack troop to halt further oil exploration and exportation from the Niger Delta region, Vanguard reports.

In a statement by WOI Izon Ebi, the groups said it is obvious the Buhari-led government is for the north only.

The statement read: "The current revelation of the World Bank and the present NNPC scandal has given us no choice but to activate our digital strike team to swing into action to stop further exploration and exportation of oil from the Niger Delta.

"For it is very obvious that this present administration is for the North only, without putting into cognizance that 90 per cent of the resources that sustain this nation is from the Niger Delta.

"We want to warn that this deliberate provocation and intimidation by the northern oppressors to provoke the Niger Delta people would be counterproductive because we are going to resist them with the last drop of our blood and a devastating response."

According to the coalition, it would start attack on all oil infrastructures as it would not allow the resources from the Niger Delta region to be used to fund only the north.

It said the oil-rich region has been deprived of its God-given resources since 1958.

"The antics of their divide and rule tactics would never work again in the Niger Delta in this 21st century because the world and all honest Nigerians have seen the antics and tactics of the federal governments' insensitivity and insincerity after the adoption of the 16-point agenda of PANDEF on the 3rd of August 2017.

"It is still very fresh in our minds the betrayal of Isaac Boro to keep Nigerian one, the killing of Ken Saro Wiwa and the Ogoni 9 and the dehumanization of their bodies with acid, the genocide in Odi, the genocide in Gbaramatu Kingdom.

"We the NDRC and the 21st Century Youths and all affiliate organizations are determined to prove to the world that we are not cowards. The present military operation called Operation Crocodile Smile II that is currently going on in the Niger Delta would not deter us neither would we be intimidated because the current agitators have succeeded in taking the struggle from analogue to digital.

"We have successfully proven to our oppressors before the ceasefire that we have the capacity to stop the flow of our God-given resources as our clamour and fight is for equity and justice," the coalition stated.

The Niger Delta agitators warned the federal government that the deliberate provocation of the Operation Crocodile smile 2 in the Niger Delta is a waste of time

The coalition said its grievances and agitations are genuine and nobody can intimidate them with whatever military operations.

"We advise our brothers to be calm and steadfast and avoid any confrontation with the army because we the 21st century youths and other agitators have the ability to stop the flow of our oil in our backyards.

"We want to warn that we are closely watching their actions and inactions and would respond at the appropriate time as we still believe in the eminent members of the PANDEF that persuaded us to ceasefire for sincere dialogue, for lasting peace for the rich, but impoverished people of the Niger Delta.

"If our understanding and sincerity is taken for granted, it means we would have no choice but to prove that we are not cowards and we would start implementing our next line of action for operation zero barrel of oil in the Niger Delta because enough is
