Niger Delta Avengers Launch ‘Operation Humble’ To Cripple Nigerian Economy

The militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, say they have launched ‘Operation Humble’ aimed at crippling the economy as it did during the first tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The group said this in a statement made available to journalists on Saturday, vowing to deal with politicians who are working with the Federal Government “to undermine the Niger Delta region”.

“It is disheartening that despite being the economic backbone and having resolved to maintain the peaceful environment for the smooth operations of the oil multinationals whose proceeds the country cling unto for economic survival, the Niger Delta and the South-South remain the most underdeveloped, with our needs and interests undermined by the failed Nigerian State”, the statement said.

The Avengers had almost crippled Nigeria’s economy between 2016 and 2018 by attacking oil facilities in the Niger Delta region, which plunged the nation into recession.
