Niger Delta Avengers have released a statement on their website,
slamming members of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger
Delta, MEND. Read the statement they titled “Mend your criminal days are
“We appeal to the general public and all sane minds on the activities of
Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to disregards all purported statements and
misplaced threat emanating from disbanded criminal elements like the
(Movement For the Emancipation of The Niger Delta)
that are political sidekicks and desperation from Gov. Adams Oshiomhole
of Edo state, Mr. Timipre Silva and their political paymasters to hold
their political party to the jugular of the affairs of the Niger Delta
Region. That our struggle is focused on the liberation of the People of
Niger Delta from decades of divisive rule and exclusion. We are watching
keenly their regretful efforts at rebranding and regrouping criminal
elements in the region for their short political gains and territories.
The NDA is unperturbed, we have mandate that is clearly a departure of
those old tactics of the defunct so-called MEND that was indulged in
kidnapping, hostage taking, Sea piracy, illegal oil bunkering, bank
robberies and social crimes, the likes of Boyloafs, Ateke Toms, were
associated to in their days in the name struggle. The wind of change in
the Niger Delta struggle has come, we are are young, smart, and focused
Niger deltans. Our mandate is to liberate the Niger Delta people; we
don’t run after pipeline contracts.
God bless the Niger Delta People.
