New Niger Delta group emerges and demands to break away from Nigeria

Like the Nnamdi Kanu led IPOB, a new group from Niger Delta has demanded that it gains independence from Nigeria. The group named 'Region of the Niger Delta' (Rondel) has demanded the sovereignty of the region. In a statement by its spokesman, Efe Edet-Tamuno, the group said its demands are made on a non-violent struggle. Read the statement after the cut..


A Demand for the Independence of Rondel from Nigeria in 2018.
We the people of the Region of the Niger Delta (Rondel), represented by members of Rondel Solidarity Movement (RSM) - a newly born aggressive but non-violent umbrella body for all intellectuals, groups and associations in the Niger Delta Region, having lived together in the past as a loose federation under the Benin Empire and the great Ijaw and other kingdoms, desirous of searching for our own country since northerners in Nigeria have decided to evacuate southerners from 'their Nigeria' - we today, 07.06.2017 wish to announce the fusion of our various groups into one strong and united non self seeking group to champion our developmental causes and help build our region into a nation of justice, freedom, peace and prosperity.
We have, after over 6 hours of a well attended meeting held at a secret location in Rivers State, met and made Resolutions which will be remembered as The Rondel Covenant.
The Resolutions are in response to the threat by lazy and ignorant Arewa Youths to divide and destroy Nigeria (disguising as evicting the Igbos - an injury to any Southerner is an injury to all Southerners - the days of divide and conquer has ended) and noting the obvious foot dragging of the Nigerian government over this issue with no one arrested, tried or jailed despite the fact that the treasonable felons are well known and they are all not hiding whereas a certain Nnamdi Kanu of Biafra was incarcerated for over two years for daring to discuss Biafra and a certain Kola Edokpayi of Rondel is currently incarcerated for daring to challenge the government in Edo state.
Following the treasonable ultimatum issued by the Arewa Youths with tacit backing of the Arewa Consultative Forum and Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs led by Sultan of Sokoto either of who has not openly condemned the felons and call for their incarceration like they would do when the table turned, and being fed up of being described by the President of Nigeria as 5% undeserving of the benefits of Nigeria, thus desirous to found our own country where we will be treated as citizens with full rights, not some species with 5% rights,
We hereby make the following declarations and resolve as follows:
1. That all the intellectuals, groups and associations in the Niger Delta should fuse into Rondel Solidarity Movement and our demands shift from Resource Control to Independence Movement
2. That in our country, we shall return power to the true owners of the lands, the monarchs, in English-style power sharing between the Royals and the people in a Parliamentary system.
3. That we demand Independence for Rondel from Nigeria from 2018.
4. That Rondel comprises all the six states in the present South-South of Nigeria.
5. That Rondel is an acronym derived from the Region of Niger Delta, later Republic of Niger Delta, if the Arewa groups make good their threats.
6. That Rondel is our name, Rondish will be our Language and Rondland shall be our capital city. Details of these, including the locations of Rondland, shall be in our October 1 book.
7. That no inch of Rondel in the six states of Akwa-Ibom, Bayelsa, Delta, Cross River, Edo, and Rivers States shall ever be ceded to any other people or nation for any reason whatsoever and all those people drawing maps up and down are hereby warned to desist forthwith or risk our disproportionate vengeance including present and future social and economic sanctions.
8. That our motivations for decision to leave Nigeria are first President Buhari's treatment of our people as 5%, Northerner's nearly exclusive illegal and immoral occupation of our oil wells destroying our ecosystems and the eviction notice by Arewa Youths with tacit support of government and the Arewa leaders.
9. That since that treasonable order by Arewa youths, and because no one was arrested, tried and convicted for the high treason, the same matter for which Nnamdi Kalu was imprisoned for about two years, we no longer have faith in one indissoluble Nigeria.
That we state emphatically and without equivocation, that in the likely event of the disintegration of Nigeria, we have resolved to live together in the “Region of Niger Delta', which we henceforth now wish to call RONDEL.
That we wish henceforth, as a people, to be known and addressed as Rondelites and our languages to be known as dialects of Rondish, which shall be our Official Language, side by side English.
That our capital city shall be a portion carved out of an existing area in the Region of Niger Delta and to be renamed Rondland. Details, including out national anthem, flag, coat of arms and interim Constitution, will be published in our book, "RONDEL MANIFESTO: The Making of a Nation" to be released on October 1, 2017.
That the Igbo people, and indeed all Africans and foreigners, are heartily welcome to visit, stay, live in or do legitimate business unencumbered anywhere in Rondel now and in the future.
14. That in the event of a breakup and the Biafrans, the Omoluabis, Middle Beltans, etc have their separate countries, we will be willing to enter into economic partnerships to help each other grow their economies and societies to achieve the Millennium Developed Goals.
15. That this Resolution serves as a warning and a Notice to the Nigerian government, the International community, including all the northern states of Nigeria that henceforth, if any Igbo or indeed any Southerner or Middle Beltan Nigerian is ever attacked or killed again anywhere in the north in a hate or xenophobic attack, we shall declare our Independence within three months.
This is not a threat but self preservation.
That since the Arewa youths have given the Igbos (that implies all southerners, we are not fooled) three months notice to vacate ‘their Nigeria’, we give all northern oil bloc owners three months notice from October 1, 2017 for them to leave the Niger Delta Region or face unpredictable adverse consequences.
17. That we are now ready to take our destiny in our own hands and end this parasitic forced marriage of perpetual disaster since 1914.
18. That we in the Region of Niger Delta declare today 07.06.2017 as the commencement date for our Independence struggle.
19. That the minimum demand for negotiation is arrest, prosecution and conviction of all those who were involved in the provocative treasonable felony. Condemning their action or threat to arrest them will not suffice this time.
20. That we wish to declare to the troublesome northerners that Enough is Enough.
Thank you.
Signed,
Efe Edet-Tamuno
(Spokesperson RSM)

Just ROTF LOLOL No be small Rondland and Rondish language. that tells you the retards proposing this dont even know that the delta region is one of the most linguistically diverse regions in Nigeria and that you cannot actually create a new language just by saying it. Oh geez. There is something bad in the drinking water that is causing disorientation.

Just unlike the NigerDelta Avengers that went into dissolution after receiving millions of Naira, a political secession in form of direct democratic style of government never really are completely sent sleeping. Future generations may take up the cause even. Coupled with other marginalization inquests by other groups and uncurbed bokoharam mayhem youths are looking for loopholes. Imagine the vice-president landing Borno State getting more waves than the scores dead from terrorist attack same day. But people like T.B Joshua whom I read gave scholarship to more than 20 beggar kids including sharing ten full trailer load of bag rice to same Borno people is not news anywhere.

I am a Biafran and you have my full support. My visit to the house of reps here in Abj two days ago opened my eyes to a lot of fuckery going on in our country. We can't fold our hands and watch these illiterates make decisions on sensitive matters.

This a good start and easy to go

Very good. The south has been fooled for too long. The north makes us hate each other so that they can continue to rule. But we are so blinded by generations of lies and stupidity that we don't realize it. Time for the south to wake up in one united front and say enough!

I am Igbo, but I support my Niger delta brothers. Please guys fight for your rights biko. Nigeria should disintegrate. Let Yoruba go their way, Hausa go their way, Igbo go their way and Niger delta go their way. Because the Hausa people are the major beneficiaries of the proceeds of oil in Nigeria. And they always feel that they own Nigeria and feel entitled. Look at what they did to Jonathan as if he does not have any right to rule Nigeria. Let everybody go let's see who can make it. Hausa people has gotten so lazy because of the Nigerian oil. And they have been over fed with oil that they're been intoxicated with it. Since they cannot share political and economic power equally, they should let everybody go their separate ways and rule themselves. No one is born to rule. Nigeria should be four countries. Namely: 1. Arewa. 2. Biafra. 3. Oduduwa. 4 Niger delta aka Rondel. That's the way to go or else, there should be a referendum. One section cannot be acting entitled and feeling as if they call the shots, yet they bring nothing to the table, only bombing places and destroying people and properties. At the end of the day, their interest will be protected by the government. Appointments and key government positions will be given to them, yet some people suffer pollution from the refineries.
Nigeria of today is nolonger Nigeria of 1960/66. We have come a long way.
Hausa go your way and stop tagging along because of oil.

For the fact that these five rondland are not inclusive in biafraud speak volume. Igbos are criminals and want to include Delta, Akwa Ibom, cross rivers and River state in their map.

Stop drawing map anyhow.

Look at this anon 6.42 thief. Lagos us a Yoruba land Yoruba soil. Don't you dare for one second forget that. Yorubas don't claim your south south land or Igbo land. How dare you claim to own Lagos. You must be out of your mind. The fact that Yorubas are accommodating and allow you to but property in their land does not make them stupid. Don't bite the fingers that feed you.

When southerners fight and hate on themselves, northerners keep winning and grabbing Nigeria by two hands. (Divide and rule).
Why do they always want to rule? Because they feel they are entitled to the resources than any other person. With their shallow brain, they think that that will continue, no times have changed, people's eyes are more opened now. They'd better do the right thing.

Sharap! It's not about Igbos this time. It's about RONDEL. Biafra is the five eastern states; Abia, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo. So keep your long mouth sum there. It is south/ South and south/ east, did they sound the same to you? We support Rondel, let them fight for their right, it's getting too much.

Anyone can advocate for split in Nigeria but not the south-southerners! Haba! Let's be realistic and tell ourselves the truth. I say this because I am a south southerner, I was born and raised in warri, and originally hail from Edo, truth be told, southerners are the laziest set of Nigerians I have ever come across, I have lived in the east foe a while now, I have lived among northerners, the southern leaders are every letter of the word GREEDY and are controlled by money,there are still some places in delta state where they insist on kings settling issues instead of police, these same kings collect money and speak lies, back up the highest bidder. We do not have a culture or a belief system that can be trusted everyone is just concerned about how much he can accumulate so that others can be loyal to him and cal him 'boss'.
On a third note southerners do not love each other,they lack what it takes to stand up for each other, I mean it, all the while I lived in delta state you hear things like, 'you be even this town boy sef' when it comes to receiving anything, they should just keep shut and if anyone should make a move let it be a move for everyone to return to their home town and let us all start from the scratch.

Bello Ajibola said...

If the so called BIAFRANS are intelligent enough they should know now that this is a bad signal for their BIAFRA struggle.The Igbos think the Niger delta region will be part of Biafra,mumu people.Now they can see clearly that the Niger Delta is not part of their Biafra.They intend to take over the oil rich region.You have been disappointed,Kanu.Igbo region do not have any economic source of income to finance a country,Now that the Niger Deltans now have their own group.Selfish mumu BIAFRANS.

oiza said...

You see y the north will always continue to dominate the rest of Nigeria? Because they understand one voice,They move same direction like the cows they are..( they are united). But you see the southerners, easterners they are so divided! Before you can win a fight there has to be unity, everybody must operate with one voice,It's so obvious that biafra is now more than a joke not to talk of this rondland or whatever... Yet again I feel this is a strategy that the military wants to use in taking over.. And Nigerians hope we all know that these military men are mostly northerners..

Linda tell them Nigeria can not split even depert. It can never hpen everyone is shouting bla bla bla, Nigeria will remain Nigeria. We should stop pointing fingers. Let take a look at it this governors are collecting allocations on behalf of there state and regions but nothing to show only to feed there family and belly. But neglected the local government and this local government were the one close to the people in terms of needs. This are were government should look at i mean the grassroots, especially there in Eastern part dwn to north and some parts of west as well. I think this will bring the country bak to good chape. And government should bring the youth along in whatsoever they are doing in there chambers.that is it, #Nigeriaunite... We are one....

Ghen Ghen.......buh in actualizing biafra/Niger delta Republic ....the both parties need to come together to form a strong nation...buh if Niger delta insists that they are gona be on their own..then they should be able to remap the whole region and give biafra people the igbo speaking part in delta and river state....as far as igbo is concern..there is nothing like delta igbo,,ika igbo,,central igbo,,,kwale igbo etc..abegi..all the igbos are the same..this is the mentality non igbo speaking parts are using to divide the igbos....a delta from kwale will be answering igbo name..and yet still tells you that he is not igbo..thats a pure lie..same in rivers...e.g tonto dikeh..I want to make it clear here for some people that knows nothing about igbo...igbo language has many dialects,,we have some of the dialects in rivers and delta..buh they will come out and say they ain't ibo because they are being map as south/south instead of south east ...yet what they speaks is igbo dialect..e.g..my friend is from aragba in ughelli north..and in some part of the area like obiaruku,ogume,amai,aragba,abraka,etc... what they speak is kwale.buh he will be telling you that he is an urhobo man..because kwale tongue is their mother tongue while urhobo is their father's..i was like..oga there is nothing like that..because it's igbo you speaking...I might not know how to speak there kwale igbo,ika igbo etc..that is because it's not my own dialect..buh I hear them wela....my dad is from awka while mum is owerri.. buh born and bread @onitsha...I don't know how to speak my awka /owerri dialect..buh I hear them..this is cos I didn't grow using awka dialect..i grew with onitsha dialect....same case with people of Ebonyi/Enugu state..most igbo people doesn't hear there tongue because there dialect is too hard..buh what they are actually speaking...is still igbo dialect ...so if Delta/rivers people is gon break out of biafra..that means..there is gon be a reconstructing of the map..all the igbos speaking part in south/south will join biafra...because there is nothing like delta igbo,ika igbo,ukwani..etc..igbo is igbo....in the northern part...fulani language is totally different from hausa....even though they embraced hausa as their second language....its not common to see an hausa man speaking fulani..buh you can see a fulani man speaking hausa.thats why hausa/fulani are in unison...south/south &south east..make una learn from hausa/fulani oooooo....ohk nah...lemme come and be going..

Yorubas are okay with what they are getting from the table from the northerners. They feel they are the most favoured of the North. Even if they are, why should it be So? The so called Nigeria is it not for everyone? Why should a certain tribe feel that they are the ones to control and now favour others? Everybody should have equal control. Going by resources, Niger delta should have the lion share because they're the ones that are suffering the pollution the most. But North and their intimidation are Just grabbing and moving everything to their side.
