Surrender Now or be wiped out - Nigerian Navy warns Avengers

The Nigerian Navy has issued a warning to the Niger Delta Militants to embrace peace talk with the federal government or face full force of military.

In an interview with DailySun, the Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Vice Admiral Ibok-Ette Ibas said the Nigerian Navy has the capacity to wipe out militancy from the Niger Delta.

He said the Navy has refrained from applying force due to the ongoing negotiations between the militants and the government. The navy boss however, warned that the military would come down heavily on the militants should the dialogue between the various tiers of government and the militants fail.


The vice admiral called on the militants to have a rethink of their acts which he said is threatening the economy of the country.

He said no responsible government anywhere in the world would fold its arm and watch a group of militants take laws into their hands by disrupting the peace and economy of its nation.

According to Ibas, the Buhari administration, more than administrations before it in the last few decades, has made enormous investments in the procurement of desired facilities for the force.

He insisted that the Navy has done well especially in the area of helping to fight insurgencies and pirates. “The Navy has done a lot to support the national objective.

The economic mainstream of the nation is domiciled in the maritime domain. If the Navy doesn’t have the capacity to ensure that the activities out there are uninterrupted, then there will be serious crisis in the nation.

“We have also tried to collaborate with other national agencies to keep the maritime space secure,” he said.
