Pipeline-bombing militants Niger Delta Avengers has said in a statement released on Tuesday that it’s fighting for the interest of the Niger Delta and nothing more.
Said the group:
“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 young, smart, and focused Niger Deltans. Our mandate is to liberate the Niger Delta people; we do not run after pipeline contracts.”
