‘Why we intensified bombing of pipelines and ignored ceasefire pleas’
The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM) yesterday explained why it did not listen to the Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark-led Pan Niger Delta Forum’s (PANDEF) plea to end the destruction of oil facilities in the region.
According to the spokesman of the upland-based NDGJM’s spokesman, ‘General’ Aldo Agbalaja, they clearly understood the psyche of the present Federal Government which core belief is to intimidate the people of the region with the military and not sincere about peaceful dialogue with the people, hence their resolve to sustain the campaign and pursuit of justice for their people.
Agbalaja said: “We will start by commending all the brave comrades from across the region, who have summoned the courage to join in and support the call to intensify actions against this faithless Nigerian administration, which core belief is in intimidation and the use of insincere tactics to steal from the supposedly weak.
“The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate is well informed of their psyche, hence our resolve to sustain this campaign and pursuit of justice for our people.
“We are not ignorant of the fact that the Nigerian government, having exhausted all the gimmicks and deception up their sleeves, will soon resort to a blind harassment and arrest of our people, innocent albeit.
“Our message to you is to also expect consequences for your actions. If you harass and arrest our people, you will be initiating a new and more deadly mode of this campaign.
“Know that this struggle will not be put down, even if you arrest and kill half of the Niger Delta, remember the saying that ‘you may kill the messenger, but the message is immortal.”
