|IJAW militants yesterday alleged that the United States of America (USA) military personnel have stormed the Niger Delta region following the crises that engulfed the area in recent times.
Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND) and Warri-Ijaw Peace Monitoring Group, made the allegation in separate statements and warned U.S government to steer clear of the Niger Delta so as not to aggravate the situation.
But the Federal Government reacted swiftly saying that there is absolutely no truth in it.
The groups gave the warning just as another groups, Ijaw Youth Congress (IYC) claimed that 40 persons were killed by the operatives of the military Joint Task Force (JTF) in the two attacks on Okerekoko last week.
MEND in a statement signed by Gen. Brutus Ebipadei, threatened not to spare any embassy if any village is attacked by the American soldiers in “Izonland.”
“The world should know that we are aware of the American military presence in the Black Wastes of the Niger Delta an issue we consider food for the gods of Izonland!
“Unstiffled as we are, we worry for the families and friends of paratrooper Americans who had been forced to do battle against defenceless Niger Delta widows in the tricky creeks of the Niger Delta region.
