The Defence Headquarters has responded to threats issued by the Niger Delta Avengers to resume operations of bombing of oil and gas pipeline in the region, punch reports.

The Avengers in a statement on their website on Friday, January 6 launched Operations Walls of Jericho and Hurricane Joshua in the region threatening to continue hostility.

Brig.-Gen. Rabe Abubakar who is the director of information of Defence Headquarters warned the militants as they would ensure the security and safety of the country.

“This is our country and it is the responsibility of all citizens to work for its peaceful well-being and development.

“The military and other security agencies will continue to ensure the protection of lives and property of citizens in the Niger Delta or any other part of the country.

“Any act of sabotage by any group will not be condoned. We will leave no stone unturned in our efforts to maintain and protect our critical infrastructure in line with our mandate. He called on all citizens to provide useful information to security operatives to help in dealing with militancy.

“All citizens should cooperate with the military and other security agencies in the area by providing timely information and report any suspicious persons or groups that threaten the economic activities anywhere in the country.

“We are not targeting anybody or group. Therefore, there is no need for any group to work against the country, no matter their grievances. Political leaders have embarked on negotiations with the stakeholders.”

Recall that Clark led other Niger Delta leaders to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja but they have accused the president on not following up with the demands presented to him.
