The Federal Government on Monday declared war on the Niger Delta Avengers, NDA when it deployed sophisticated fire arms to Niger Delta creeks.
The deployment of an armada of five warships, 100 gunboats and fighter jets is in response to the continued bombing of oil and gas pipelines by the NDA.
The Airforce deployed the fighter jets and helicopter gunships, the Army swooped on four more Ijaw communities in Gbaramatu Kingdom, Warri South West Local Government Area, Delta State, for the militants.
Helicopter gunships were seen hovering at low altitude in the predominantly riverine council.
Efforts to halt the depredations of the dearly group has started and we hope it continues till they lay down their arms.
