A militant group, Niger Delta Revolutionary Crusaders (NDRC) in Niger Delta has threatened to launch attack on Mosques and Muslims in the state if Boko Haram insurgents attack Christians and churches in the country as stated by the terror group’s new leader Abu Masab el-Barnawi, on Wednesday.
The NDRC, in a statement issued on Saturday, and signed by WOI Izon-Ebi, said:
The group further said:We want to alert Nigerians and the world that the Islamization plot has been proven by the Boko Haram new leader Abu Masab el Barnawi that their new mission is to kill all Christians and burn down all churches.But, we want to warn them that we, the Niger Delta youths, in this 21st century will not accept killing of innocent Christians or burning of churches. That if they try it in the north or any part of Nigeria, we the Niger Delta youths will not see any Muslim or mosque in the Niger Delta.
“We are not against President Buhari granting the Boko Haram amnesty if their sole purpose is to own an Islamic caliphate in the north, but they should not shift it to the Niger Delta.All we know and want is resource control and true federalism, if truly they believe in one Nigeria, and are working harder to build a prosperous One Nigeria, let them shift their Operation Crocodile Tears to the Fulani herdsmen and the Boko Haram that is threatening the unity and peace of Nigeria.
