The Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF) promised to “destroy” 8 strategic buildings in Nigeria including the Aso Rock Villa on Tuesday 7th June 2016.
On why it didn’t carry out the launching of missiles which it claimed it had, the “commander” of the militant sect Akotebe Darikoro, has this to say:
“There is no gainsaying that we made our earlier promise to launch six Missiles simultaneously against some targeted areas. But this was waved aside as a result of appeals made to us through email by the Federal Government and some international nations to open talks with (President) Buhari.
“We saw some genuine aspiration on the part of Buhari, who made several contacts to us to see reason with them over the issue of under-development of the region. And since he (Buhari) had set the ball rolling for a clear negotiation with us, there is no problem without solution. We have therefore declared ceasefire in order to negotiate with the government if it is a true reflection of what they have in mind to develop the Niger Delta region.
“We are not ready to negotiate with the federal government for the sake of monetary benefit to us but how genuinely the government will develop the region is at the centre of our discussion and anything less than that we will continue our struggle without further warning to the federal government.”
