Niger Delta Council blasts MEND, Avengers, says they are armed robbers

It was gathered that the Supreme Niger Delta Youth Council WorldWide, SNDYCW, has disowned the Niger Delta Avengers and the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, describing their activities as “pure armed robbery.”

The President General of the Council, Prince Michael Newgent Eaton, stated this when the council met with the leadership of the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, in Kaduna on Thursday.

He noted categorically that members of the MEND and the Avengers should be arrested and prosecuted.

Ekamon remarked that they were in Kaduna to meet with leaders and elders of the region who had served the country well and wanted to see the country remain as one indivisible entity.

He explained that, “Our group is not militant. We are here to see how we can build one Nigeria. We want to condemn the activities of the Avengers and the MEND. They are criminals. But better put, armed robbers who are stealing the wealth of our land.

“We know them. We know that some of the Avengers have served in the previous government and they are even serving in this present government.

“If we are given the mandate, we will go and confront them in their houses. So, we don’t want President Buhari to be deceived by their antics. There is nothing in the real sense like avengers. They are playing pranks.”

The President stated that the problem in the region was not the problem of Federal government but that their leaders were sabotaging the people because of greed.

He queried: “What is it that the federal government has not done for the region? We have OMPADEC, NDDC, 13 percent derivation, Ministry of Niger Delta and security votes. We don’t know what our governors are doing with the security votes.”

He remarked that it was based on this premise that they were organizing a summit in Edo State between the 27th and 29th of October to discuss the problem in the region.

“We are here to extend our hands of friendship to the people in this region.

“To seek their blessing and support. That’s why we are here with the former Senate president, Joseph Wayas, who has never been invited by any anti-corruption agency. We also have the blessing of former Head of state, General Gowon”, he stated.

Responding, the chairman of ACF, Ibrahim Coomasie, observed that the two regions had sustained a long period of friendship.

Represented by one of the elders in the region, Musa Liman, he said the forum believed in the doctrine of one Nigeria where equal justice and equity prevailed.
