A video of Niger-Delta militants threatening to attack Lagos and Abuja has emerged.
News Rain Nigeria gathered that in the viral video, the Supreme Egbesu Liberation Fighters accused the federal government of marginalising the region and failing to deliver on the amnesty programme.
A masked member of the group said: “After accepting the amnesty pact, till date, there are no schools, no potable water, no light, no hospital and access roads for our people to enjoy”.

He also complained that “no meaningful progress has been made” with the Ogoni clean-up project “because the Nigerian government has decided to play politics against the meaningful development of our people”.
It asked the government to allow the region to manage its resources “the way Zamfara gold mining sector is being handled by their own people”.
“Over the years, the Niger Delta people have made frantic efforts to create an enabling environment… but to our great dismay, the Nigerian government over the years has decided to handle the issues of the Niger Delta with kid gloves.
“They have betrayed the struggle and have left the people to their fate.
“Rather, what is visible in the presence of military gunboat and the numerous military personnel dispersed to the Niger Delta who is killing, raping, and maiming the innocent people of the region.”
