Ibrahimovic Tests Positive For COVID-19

AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tested positive for coronavirus, the Serie A club have confirmed.

The  Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators (CNDA) have ordered northerners residing in the region to leave before October 1, 2017 or face the consequences.

This latest threat came few days after the coalition handed down an ultimatum to the Federal Government, demanding return of oil blocks owned by the northerners to the region.

The coalition is made up of nine groups, including Niger Delta Warriors, Niger Delta Volunteers (NDV), Niger Delta Watchdogs (NDW), Niger Delta Peoples Fighters (NDPF), Bakassi Freedom Fighters (BFF), Niger Delta Movement for Justice (NDMJ), Niger Delta Fighters Network (NDFN), Niger Delta Freedom Mandate (NDFM) and Niger Delta Development Network (NDDN).

The agitators accused security agencies of complacency and said they were ready to declare Sovereign Republic of Niger Delta on October 1.

Spokesperson for the NDW General John Duku said the security agencies were privy to the quit notice to the South Easterners by Arewa youths.

The General said  “All northerners living in Niger Delta has been given three months notice to quit the Niger Delta before October 1, 2017. We still stand by our previous decisions, and we demand immediate return of oil blocks owned by northerners back to the Niger Delta people. All oil and gas companies operating in oil block(s)/well(s) illegally owned by northerners should also vacate such oil blocks/wells/plat-forms before October 1, 2017″.
