Group says the president’s neglect of dialogue necessitated the recent threat
– Vows to continue derailing the nation in any way possible
– Denies being sponsored by Tompolo
Reports credited to Vanguard have it that the Niger Delta Avengers will prevent President Muhammadu Buhari from exporting crude oil from their region.
The militants who have been unrepentant with their vandalisation of oil installations and pipelines in the Niger Delta region are roaring that since the president has refused to have a real dialogue with stakeholders in the region, they’ll keep stopping the president’s plans.
In fact, they have threatened that their struggle has entered an advanced phase since the president has showed that he prefers to win the battle and lose the war.
The Avengers denied the belief that they are being sponsored by ex-militant leader, Government Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo (recently nominated by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) as a member of its Aaron 2 Negotiating Team).
