Abuja - The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) issued a strong warning against the navy on Sunday morning, challenging key officers in the organization to visit the creeks of Niger Delta instead of operating from the safety of cities.
According to a Naij report, NDA urged Rear Admiral Jospeh Okojie, Commander of Operation Delta Safe, as well as Commodore Joseph Dzunye, Commanding Officer of the Nigeria Navy Service, to visit their strongholds in the Niger Delta area.
Following the reported arrest of two members of the NDA yesterday, the militants that both apprehended suspects were in fact spies working in collaboration with security outfits and that both men had been given N5 million by two leaders in order to provide operatives with information on the activities of militants within the Niger Delta region.
