Missile launch: Militants target Abuja, Lagos, Kaduna

he Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF),  has rebuffed entreaties by the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) not to launch its missiles as scheduled today.
JNDLF in a statement on behalf of the Joint Revolutionary Council (JRC) signed by four of its commanders including Akitebe Darikoro, Torunanaowei Latei, Agbakakuro Owei-Tauro and Pulokiri Ebiladei, vowed to forge ahead with its test runs targeted at bringing down the nation’s strategic political and economic infrastructure. It warned occupants of major national buildings and oil companies headquarters in Lagos and Abuja to vacate the buildings as it would be hit by missiles.

The buildings include Aso Rock Villa, Abuja; headquarters of the nation’s security agencies; the National Assembly; NNPC Towers; CBN headquarters; Supreme Court; Agip headquarters in Abuja; Shell headquarters in Lagos; Chevron headquarters in Lagos; Mobil headquarters in Lagos; NLNG offices in Lagos and Abuja; Kaduna Refinery; and all military formations in Lagos, Abuja, Kaduna and Benue.
The group also said it has resolved that “the Nigerian Communication Statelite Orbit should be shut down so that it will avoid the cause of electronic radiation to human lives.”
The statement noted that the motive was “to destroy all those infrastructures that were built with our oil and gas” and not to shed human blood, hence the warning for the occupants of the targeted buildings to immediately vacate.
“We will make Federal Government and oil companies to suffer as they have made the people of Niger Delta region suffer over the years from environmental degradation and environmental pollution.
“We shall fire these missiles simultaneously at night, as this will enable every Nigerian to see the movement of the missiles and equally to believe us on our seriousness to the final break-up (of Nigeria), as as predicted by the United States of America (USA)
“We equally advise the diplomatic community to be neutral on this issue as wrong comments against us will be seen as sabotage. Where they are staying presently will not be affected which is not part of our targeted areas of destruction in the country.
