Niger Delta Avengers Announces Return, Vows To Cripple Economy

Niger Delta Avengers, the militant group that almost crippled Nigeria’s economy during the first term of President Muhammadu Buhari, says it is back.

Buhari was barely a year in office when the militant group started attacking oil installations, forcing Nigeria into recession.

The attacks cut oil production from a peak of 2.2 million barrels per day to below one million barrels per day, the lowest level for more than 30 years.

In a statement on Saturday, the militant group said it had launched ‘Operation Humble’ which is targeted at crippling the Nigerian economy.

It also threatened to attack politicians who are working with the Federal Government “to undermine the Niger Delta region”.

The group said it renewed hostility because government has allegedly failed to meet its demand.
