Nigerian oil rebels threaten 'all-out' attacks

Nigeria's main rebel group Saturday called off a truce in the oil-rich Niger Delta, threatening an "all-out onslaught" and adding to the political and economic woes of Africa's oil and gas giant.

The announcement is a fresh blow for authorities amid uncertainty over the health of the country's president, in hospital in Saudi Arabia for more than two months, which has sparked an unprecendented political crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The adults in the room in the halls of power in Nigeria need to negotiate with MEND leadership, which is simply asking that there be a more equitable distribution of oil revenues, which is a reasonable request.

The only other possibility here will be a massive civil war, which will be an horrendous outcome for all of Nigeria's citizens.
