January 31, 2016 – Niger Delta Militants Seize Oil Ship, Kidnap Crew Member, Give Buhari 31 Days To Release Biafran Leader Nnamdi Kanu

“We Will Blow Up The Oil Ship & The Crew Members If Nnamdi Kanu Isn’t Freed In 31 Days”Militants Threatens FG

A group of Niger Delta militants in support of the agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has claimed responsibility for the hijack of a ship on Friday along the Bakassi Pennisula Nigeria coastal line.

The group, which recently gave the Federal Government a 31-day ultimatum to release Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader and Director of Radio Biafra, said the concerned Niger Delta agitators were abreast with the incarceration of Kanu.

Spokesperson of the group, who gave his name as General Ben, threatened that they would blow up the vessel with the expatriates onboard, if the government continues to dilly-dally over Kanu’s release.

Speaking in Port Harcourt yesterday, the group’s spokesperson declared that they would not wait till the end of the ultimatum, before showing their seriousness.

Ben stated: “We cannot wait till the end of the 31 days to tell the Federal Government that we are serious. The vessel and the crew are under custody.

And any noise, any delay from government, we will blow up everything. We will blow the vessel and everybody in the vessel will go down. “We are not interested in the country that owns the vessel. What we know is that the vessel was coming to Nigeria to lift oil. We are not interested;; once it is blown up, let the country and Nigeria resolve the matter.

“We are in touch with everything happening around the IPOB leader.

Now, court has denied him bail, saying because of his dual citizenship, he might jump bail. We also heard that the judge said he would rather give the matter an accelerated hearing.

This is provocative;; hence we did not waste time to go into action. We are in support of the Biafra struggle.

We will not retreat or surrender. “The federal government might have taken our ultimatum as an empty threat. But, we will surprise them,” he stated.

Also, the group reacted to the Supreme Court verdict, which upheld the appeal filed by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, saying that it saved the state from bloodshed.

Ben said the state would have been overwhelmed by crisis, warning any government against sabotaging the IPOB agitation of the consequences.

      They might have being paid for this action because Ijaw shouldn’t be concern with Biafra or with Kanu problem.An intelligent Ijaw militant man should fight for his own freedom and not join hands with the Igbos to actual Biafra, An intelligent Rivers state / Bayelsa man and woman is suppose to know by now that the Igbos hate them. The interest of the Igbos is to take over Rivers / Bayelsa , because of our oil. They see Ijaw man as lazy and senseless.The same Igbos that infest your state and Hate you , is the same Igbos you are blowing up your oil shp for. What a shame.Rivers mom and dad should advice their children. Igbos are no friends.

        Vicky,you are too smart for the Igbos strategy, dominance and their intention to takeover the southsouth oil wells from your people. The Ijaws are different from the Almighty Igbo people by language, culture, history, and approach to issues. Ijaws people doesn’t speak Igbo language, and the Igbos have no respect for them if not for their oil rich region they intend to control by the first Biafran war design aND purpose. Ijaw youths should wise up and stop behaving like dumb people with no common sense. If Ojukwu had succeeded during the Biafra war, the battle today between the Ijaws or southsouth people and Igbos will be worse compares to Isreal and Palestinian struggle. I want to believe that majority of the hijackers of that ship are Igbo youths posing and acting like Ijaw youths. My advice for those fools is to let go of the ship and it crew, if not, they will be stop and kill my Nigerian army and navy. Shameless idiots! Thousands of your threats will not get that mannerless criminal called Kanu Nnamdi from prison. With this dumb action, you have even make it more difficult for him to be released from the prison in the zoo called according to that fool.

          You guys a smarter than an ass! South South indeed. wheres west west and north north @Omokehinde ,The oil wells is better in the hands of Hausa/Fulani and their Yoruba counterparts . But not in the hands of the real owners and Igbos. Too late for Nigeria.” No more divide and rule.”
          I could remember when my village obigbo now (Oyigbo)was in Abia state. But cos of oil and to ensure that the Igbos are completely out of the oil producing states, obj joined us to rivers state. But today, there’s oil in almost all the villages in abia state and some parts of IMO state. God is wise and you can’t curse whom He has chosen to bless.

      who is Nigeria???????????????/ Biafrans!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so they need their cut of the National Cake now and its by fire by force in as much as they have cried, fight, plead for it without success and You keep on denying them everything. Nigeria can still leave without Biafra and Biafra has been existing from the time of old or are you afraid of the future battle from the Bokos. Human being is not God if really God has ordained the people of Biafra as a nation doesnt matter how long you hinder them surely they will arise as a nation according to Gods creation

    Let them try the strength of authority of the state nation Nigeria that has all the powers of cohesive arrest and detention and see if they are not playing time with suiside. What has the many years of Niger Delta agitations earned them beyond the stipends being dolled out. I pray they carry out their threat and see if the entire Niger Delta region will not errupt in reprisal flame.

    I believed that peaceful dialouge is the best solution for eveything,let there be peace war or blood sheed will not do any good to both sides,let them release the man as they have granted bails to most Nigerian billion dollars lutters, we should not behave like the jews who said that the robbers should be released to them and kill an innocent man jesus.let there be a dialouge which will compirse of old and inteliget Nigerian like pro whole Soyinka and host of others.

    My advise for these militants is to stop this imminent threat because of the consequence on Igbo people. This is not the right time to clamour for Biafrian sovereignty. Kanu your self acclaimed leader was charged with treasonable offense which carries death penalty. For the fact that the federal government is softening the pedal on his case does not mean the government does not know what to do. The government could have refused him a bail but they let him out on bond. Since he is carrying two passports, the government has right to allow him to choose one just to be sure which side he belongs. You cannot be attacking Nigerian government and at the same time claiming British citizen, that has to be spelt out. In order for you to curve yourself out of Nigeria, you should be ready to make a lot of sacrifice. Ojukwu tried it once he failed. What makes you think you are going to make it this time around? The present hardship situation in Nigeria now is greatly affecting everybody not only one tribe but if you choose to go down this route, Syria will be a child’s play and you will eventually lose more people than previous Biafran war.

    The federal government of Nigeria must not have any negotiation or discussion with any terrorist or this terrorist group based in Niger Delta. It is a sign of weakness and great incompetent for any government to negotiate with deadly group who threatened our peace and commerce in exchange for the release of aNY potential terrorist or criminal. The president should immediately despatch Nigerian Navy and other military forces with better ammunations and weaponry to kill and put this animals to rest. If the government has any prior intention to release Mr. Kanu Nnamdi before this ship hijacked, Kanu should remain in prison indefinitely for treason, and fraudulently entering NigerIA with fake passport. President Buhari should show this so called Niger Delta terrorist group that nobody is above the law, and any group that threatened peace and unity of Nigeria will not be tolerated by his government. The president should act this time around like Commander in Chief of Nigerian Armed Forces and use Nigerian military power to destroy this idiots. This will deter other crooks and jobless criminals from issuing a similar threats against the Federal Republic of Nigeria by ther wealtho god fathers in the region. This is action or threat is from of past Nigetian Looters in the Niger Delta with billions of dollars of stolen money from our treasure to distracts PMB admistration from the ongoing corruption probe. President Mohammed Buhari should do whatever it takes militarily to destroy this group and neutralize their threat without aNY negociation. Kanu Nnamdi should never be released for any reason because of this threat from criminals. This is another test of president Buhari competence by another terrorist group been financed by some looters with billions of dollars stolen from our national treasure.

    President Buhari should keep that crook and 419 guy continuously in maximum prison for treasonable offense against our government. There should be no negotiation or contact with this terrorist group. The president should treat this threat as a test of his presidency, and bash those bastards with the most deadliest military response in Nigerian history. This will serve as warning to other who want to follow suit. Just because of this threat, Kanu Nnamdi should remain permanently in prison. NO NEGOCIATION MR. PRESIDENT AND THE ARMY SERVICE CHELFS SHOULD GET READY FOR SEROIUS MILITARY RESPONSE, THIS IS THE ONLY WAY OUT OF THIS NONSENSE AND THREATS.

    I dare call their bluff. At any rate, this approach is highly uncalled for. Biafrans are not savages who take people’s lives for wanton whims. Those people are innocent and law abiding citizens of whichever country; they did nothing to anybody. Therefore harming them to realise Biafra’s cause would be pouring innocent blood on the altar of a good cause, and, believe me, this blood is the kind that would defile the whole altar. We don’t need this!

    No responsible government the world over negotiates with Terrorist, hence they (terrorist) will always resort to blackmail and they will often come back for more and more demands…..like “Oliver Twist”. So the only antidote to quenching the insatiable blood –thirst; of any Terrorist gang is to CRUSH them (Terrorist) unequivocally.
    Examples of countries that have combated terrorist siege in the past abound.
    (1)France -The terrorist attack on a theatre in the street of Paris -2015.
    (2)Kenya -The Westgate shopping mall shooting in September 2013
    (3)Russia -The Moscow theatre hostage crisis, 23 October 2002
    (4)United Kingdom -The Iranian Embassy siege which took place from 30th April to 5th May 1980.
    All the examples of the hostage crisis given above; unfortunately ended in bloodbath -But this is the only SOLUTION! To the current crisis, hence the above example shows that, NO responsible nation negotiates with terrorists. The mantra for the Nigerian government should be “Attack is the best form of Defense” and NO form of negotiations with Terrorist will be allowed!
    No terrorist gang should be seen to be bigger than any country and thus; hold that country to ransom. Not even Nigeria.
    If Nigeria should allow terror gangs to dictate to her; then the likes of Tompolo, Asari Dokubo ,Nnamdi Kanu will constantly be trampling upon the rights of the innocent Nigerian citizens. And perhaps we should refrain from referring to these “thugs” as Militants rather refer to them as Terrorist; because that is what they are;anyone using violence to attain a goal should/must be seen as a Terrorist.
