The militant group in a statement by its spokesperson, self-styled Brig. General Mudoch, said: “The news that the Nigerian Navy has arrested Niger Delta Avengers’ logistics supplier is the biggest joke of the 21st century.
“The Nigerian Navy cannot arrest any of our operatives until we bring down the economy of this country.”
