A new militant group known as Adaka Biafra Marine CommanÂdos, has joined the reÂnewed agitation for Biafra Republic.
The group in an electronic mail called for the support of everyone within the states in the South East.
The statement, signed by the Director of Information, Supreme Revolutionary Headquarters of the group, Comrade Mkpoikanke Effiong Udo Akpan, cautioned the Niger Delta Avengers to be careful over the alleged peace deals with the FedÂeral Government, saying it could be a ploy to conÂtinue the exploitation of the region.
The statement read in part: â€œWe honour and salute the valour and galÂlantry of our brothers in various organisations who have resolved to march on these tortuous and perilÂous paths to freedom.
â€œWe mourn with our brothers in IPOB (IndigÂenous Peoples of Biafra) who for over one year have lifted high the flag of our independence, making sacrifices that even Hitler would be happy that, alas, God has created a people tougher than his as they use their blood to water the plants of freedom. We assure you that your sacriÂfices will not be in vain. It will be crowned with the independence of our great Biafran nation.
â€œWe greet our brothers in MASOB, The Biafran Zionist Movement, IPOB and particularly, efforts of the Niger-Delta Avengers who have put back our just struggle in the front burner of international opinion. We salute your courage, valour, gallantry and accomplishments.
â€œBut we must warn you brothers: the enemy is now dangling very riÂdiculous settlements in order to return to our land to viciously exploit our resources to satisfy their extravagant appetite.
â€œBrothers, and compaÂtriots, these will only last for a time and after that they will continue in the viscous cycle of death, pain and deprivation. We must go back history lane: when our fathers demandÂed for a separate, indepenÂdent state, they set up the Lord Wellinks CommisÂsion who threw at us the crumbs called Niger Delta Development Board.
â€œWhere are the benefits of that board today? They later created a Niger Delta River Basin Authority and several others. Wherever they found gutters and drainages became a river basin authority.
