Few weeks ago, the Avengers tendered several request to the Buhari-led administration, among which include that the leader of the Indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu is released unconditionally as ordered by previous court. Buhari in response to their demands threatened to crush the Avengers and Biafrans as usual, citing that he'd rather commit suicide than allow Biafra to emerge, during his last visit to his home town in Katsina state.
Hours after the explosion at the Escravos facility, the terrorist in chief of the republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari warned the millitants not to confront his administration. He urged them to rather embrace talks for same amnesty programme that was initiated by Goodluck Jonathan and the late president Umar Musa Yar'adua, but was cancelled by him.

Recall that on the 13th of May, 2016, the dreaded millitants bombed the Chevron oil facility situated at the Marakaba line in Warri, Delta state, barely 24hrs after they gave all the oil companies operating in the region two weeks ultimatum to vacate their land or face the consequences.
The elite oil companies in the affected region who has been facing several setback in production of oil and gas, as a result of the incessant bomb explosions and vandalization of their facilities, are now living in fear of the unknown. It was reported that few of them has started evacuating their staffs, and planning to leave the region which is now under the control of the Avengers.
The emergence of the Avengers has brought about the resurgence of hostilities in the region. The group is fighting against subjugation and marginalisation of their people. They seek control of their resources, as well as the emancipation of their people. It would be fool-hardy for the Buhari-led administration to underestimate their resolve, as they claim they are everywhere, but at the same time invisible.
Even the army in their recent press release has confirmed that the guerilla warfare enacted by the Avengers has never been witnessed by them before.
As at the time of filing this report, the Avengers were yet to claim responsibilty for the havoc, but every detail points to them as the perpetrators of the act.
We Biafrans are delighted with their effort and are in support of their actions. Until Nnamdi Kanu is released, the Islamic republic of Nigeria will never enjoy peace!
