Our next target is to bomb Govt House, Bayelsa – Militants

THE faction of   militants which carried out the March 15 bombing in Warri, Delta State says its next target is to bomb the Government House, also known as Creek Haven, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State and the NDDC office.

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger-Delta (MEND) claimed responsibility for the two bombs, which were detonated 200 metres away from the Government House Annex, Warri.

But a supposed militant leader, who identified himself as the Udemegun of Niger-Delta, in a text message to Sunday Vanguard, yesterday, said his group was not yet done with the governors of Delta and Bayelsa states, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and Chief Timipre Sylva respectively.

His words, “I, the Udemgun of Niger-Delta is here to inform u that with my group Uduaghan, Timpre Sylva will never have peace. I will live (sic) Delta State for now until close to the campaign period, there will be massive bomb and rocket launchers attack in the state.

“Bayelsa Government House is the next target because Sylva wants to kill the people with hunger; we are going to use rocket launchers”.
