Abuja - A new intelligence report has further revealed linked between militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) and ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to a Naij report, the report indicated that oil and gas pipelines had already been infiltrated with explosives prior to Jonathan hand-over to President Muhammadu Buhari on May 29, 2015.

Having been submitted to the Presidency for further study, the report indicated that NDA was formed as a Plan B before the 2015 elections even took place.

The NDA was set to form an independent Niger Delta Republic following Jonathan's defeat at the polls but were allegedly discouraged in the days that followed the election by Jonathan himself.
