Niger-Delta militants to Nigerian military - 'We are not criminals | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The Co-ordinator of the Niger Delta People Volunteer Front (NDPVF), Mr Asu Simeon Mbi, popularly known as General Simba, has told the Nigerian military to stop tagging them as criminals and economic saboteurs.


General Simba said that using derogatory words to describe them was provocative.

Speaking yesterday on the heels of the Defense Headquarters’ vow to sustain the military onslaught in the Niger Delta and purge the region of “criminals and economic saboteurs”, the militant leader also vowed that they would sustain their agitations.

The militant leader, who claimed to be speaking for other militant groups in his region, said Niger Delta militants were not criminals, describing themselves as freedom fighters, fighting the Federal Government’s unjust leadership.

He said:”We are freedom fighters and not criminals and nobody, no authority should call us criminals or economic saboteurs. We are fighting a just cause and no amount of threat from any quarters would dampen our spirit.

“The Niger Delta struggle is a collective one, and there is no way we can be subdued. There is no going back and everybody should sustain the struggle.

“We are still very strong in this fight. We are up and doing and will not bow to any threat by the military. We have long been totally neglected and enough is enough”.

  5. I recently passed through that region by accident. I wept as I couldn't understand why poverty is so prevalent in region that has consistently produced the mainstay of our nations economy! It is our collective failure that has produced these so called freedom fighters. I particularly blame the regime of president Jonathan who is from that region and ample resources to turn the tide there, but who woefully failed to do so.

  6. Jonathan was inflicted with the common disease that affects southern leaders. Southerners always hate themselves and prefer to favour other tribes outside of their own. Igbos are champions in this. The first thing Igbo man does in his office is to remove his people in that office and stop speaking Igbo to those he can't remove. Jonathan equally did that otherwise he's supposed to develop his place first like the northner
