#EndSARS: Niger Delta militant take final decision to resume hostilities

A coalition of nine renegade militant groups from the nine states of the Niger Delta region on Monday declared support for the ongoing protest against police brutality and poor condition of living in the country, saying they are ready to resume hostilities and engage the military if the demands of the protesters are not met by the federal government.

The militant groups under the aegis of the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA) also announced that they are ready to withdraw from the ceasefire pact with the federal government, engage the troops attached to the proposed operation crocodile smile and resume attacks on some identified oil facilities in the region if issues of poor welfare, armed oppression and inequality in the standard of living between the citizens and political elites are not addressed.

The RNDA, in a statement issued via electronic mail and made available to journalists, argued that the decision by the militant groups to support the protesting youths was based on the open inequality in the distribution of wealth and development in the country.
