The Niger Delta Avengers  have threatened to begin bloody attacks against oil companies, their personnel and the Nigerian military.
 
The militant group in a statement signed by its spokesperson,  Murdock Agbinibo, also mocked the wanted ex-militant leader, government Ekpumpolo aka Tompolo over the military siege in his Gbaramatu community in Delta State.
 
He claimed that instead of going after the avengers, the military was looking for soft targets through its siege in Gbaramatu.

The avengers said they were not concerned with what goes on in Gbaramatu, adding that the siege laid by the soldiers for Tompolo had only shown the military cowardice.

It stated, “It is not our business what goes on in Gbaramatu Kingdom but our concern is the innocent children, women and aged people, whom the Nigerian military has chased away from their homes now taking refuge in the forest. We warned you before hand that the Nigerian Government, can never be trusted.” “To the Nigeria military, why are you looking for soft targets? If you are looking for the Avengers, you know how to find us. Don’t deceive your President."
