The Niger Delta Avengers And Other Militant Group Develop Explosives From Fertilizer

The National Security Adviser (NSA), Major
General Babagana Mongonu (rtd) has revealed how
the Niger Delta Avengers and other militant groups
develop explosives and detonators.
He said investigations carried out by explosives experts in
the Niger Delta region showed that the militants develop
explosives from fertilizer, adding that they uncovered the
diversion of about 9, 000kg of high explosives and 16, 420
pieces of detonators for illegal use in the area.
Mongonu disclosed this in Abuja on Thursday, August 4,
while speaking at a meeting local manufacturers of
fertilizers.
“Nigerians should recall the discovery that improvised explosive
devices (IED) being employed by terrorists for their bombing
campaigns were developed mainly from certain grades of
fertilizers with particular reference to some nitrate based types
including Urea Nitrate (synthesized from Urea)," he said.
“Accordingly, it was discovered that the indiscriminate
importation of these items by all and sundry resulted into lack
of control and it eased their availability to mischievous
elements for use to perpetrate insecurity. This indiscriminate
importation further reduced the prospects for the local
manufacture of these materials and by extension, the loss of
foreign exchange to avoidable imports. This ultimately
culminated into the ban on importation of fertilizers to the
country.”
Mongonu said some persons, including security operatives,
suspected to be behind the explosives used by the militants
have been apprehended.
“The major actors, including the store man of a major
explosives distribution company in Nigeria, an accomplice and
five (5) security operatives have been arrested and handed over
to appropriate authorities.
“Right now, investigations are being conducted and I can
assure you that they are deeply culpable and necessary actions
will be taken on conclusion of investigation.
“Let me also reiterate that any individual or company that
operates outside the confines of legitimacy or illegality will have
itself to blame. We also want to add that the government of the
day will not want to listen to any influence peddler in the
society on behalf of any company that decides to sabotage
National Security,” he said.
