A militant group, network of Niger Delta Republic fighters,  has threatened to declare a Niger Delta republic the first of next month.

In a statement, the group said they were not happy with the situation in  Nigeria.

 The statement by the director of information of the group Maxwell Dan alleged selective maltreatment of the people of the region by the  Muhammadu Buhari administration.

It listed police invasion    of the residence of a Niger Delta leader, Chief Edwin Clark,  last year and  current ordeal of the ex-chief justice of Nigeria justice Walter Onnoghen as part  of the selective maltreatment of Niger Delta people.

Mr. Dan also said it is unfortunate that after four years of this administration, there is no single viable project executed by the federal government in  Niger Delta despite the billions of naira accrued to the government from the resources of the Niger Delta as a result of the ceasefire in the region.

The group also decried killings in the country, lamenting government had not been able to protect its citizens.
