Crisis rocks Niger Delta Avengers

06 August 2016, 06:27

Port Harcourt -  Niger Delta Avengers have fractured internally with a big group splitting away

The new group known as Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA) announced its birth on citing call for peace in the region by the immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan and the resolve of the Buhari Administration to clean up areas devastated by oil   and gas exploration.

It also said it is now convinced about the genuineness of the peace initiative of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND).

Spokesman for the RNDA,Cynthia White in a statement quoted by Sahara Reporters yesterday threatened to expose the brains behind the recent resurgence of violence in the Niger Delta which brought oil production down to 1.2million barrels per day from  almost 1.8million barrels.

It offered to join the MEND Aaron Team 2 peace initiative “through the clearing house of Niger Delta Dialogue and Contact Group (NDDCG) headed by  HRH King Alfred Diette-Spiff.”

Besides,it pledged cooperation with government by “exposing  the identities of our comrades  who remain stubborn in their insistence to continue attacks.”The RNDA added: “it will shock the nation to know the Jekyll and Hyde personality behind the pseudonym  ‘Brigadier General  Murdoch Aginibo’ and our sponsors.

It advised the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to also embrace peace by accepting the concession secured by MEND for the release of the detained Biafran agitator,Nnamdi Kanu,saying those advising Kanu to reject the renunciation of   Biafra as a condition for his release  “do not love him or appreciate the level of treason this simple act of common sense humility can extricate him from.”

It warned the IPOB that the Niger Delta will “no longer be your proxy in a war to achieve your ambition,” and the NDA to “stop being defiant and embrace peace and the wise counsel we all received from former President Goodluck Jonathan.
