…Denies Arrest of Members, Killing Of Soldiers


John Dugbe



Following a recent announcement by the military that 10 members of the dreaded Niger Delta Avengers had been arrested, the militant group, Tuesday, said that no member of the group had been arrested, just as they denied killing any soldier.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Brig. Gen. Mudoch Agbinibo, posted on the group’s web page ( and their twitter account, @NDAvengers, the group stated: “Our attention has been drawn to the arrest of 10 boys by the Nigerian military.

“None of our strike team has been arrested, it is all a lie. The Nigeria military also lied that NDA killed soldiers. We haven’t engaged in combat with them, but if they want us to kill them let them come after us.”

The militants in the statement mocked Chief Government Ekpemukpolo (alias Tompolo).

It said: “Our dear brother, Tompolo, how is your friendship with the Nigerian Government? The people you took side with against us (the Niger Delta Avengers).

“We offered you the olive branch by beckoning on you to join us in this struggle, but you refused.

“It is not our business, what goes on in Gbaramatu Kingdom but our concern is the innocent children, women, and aged people who the Nigerian military has chased away from their homes now taking refuge in the forest.

“We warned you beforehand that the Nigerian government can never be trusted.”

They ‘Avengers’ advised the Nigeria military to stop looking for soft targets, adding that if they were looking for the Avengers, they knew how to find them.

Hear them: “Don’t deceive your President. Information gathered by the Intelligence unit of the Niger Delta Avengers revealed that Oil Marine Services whose Chairman and CEO is Capt. Okunbor Idahosa, also known as Capt. Hosa, is the company Nigerian Government awarded the Pipeline surveillance contract to, spanning from Escravos to Lokoja.

“The said Capt. Hosa bribed the Brigade Commander, Benin (Brig. Gen. Faruk Yahaya) alongside the Officer Commanding Army Gunboat, JTF (Major. M. B. Yahaya) with the sum of two hundred and fifty million Naira (250,000,000) in collaboration with one Ayiri Emami to destroy Gbaramatu Kingdom in the guise of looking for the Niger Delta Avengers.”

They demanded to know why Capt. Hosa, Major Yahaya, Ayiri and Brig. Gen Faruk should unleash terror on the innocent people of Gbaramatu kingdom just to secure the pipeline surveillance job. “Why making the innocent people of Gbaramatu suffer? This act of the Nigerian Army, to us, is the greatest act of cowardice.

“This fight, we believe, is against the Avengers and not the innocent villagers of Gbaramatu Kingdom,” they said.

Their statement read further: “The Nigerian Military cannot intimidate us by harassing innocent Niger Deltans.

“Gbaramatu is just one kingdom in Delta State. The Niger Delta is made up of seven states, it is therefore very funny to lure us to halt our well-planned line of actions that will shock the whole world by harassing innocent villagers.”

They threatened that Capt. Hosa, his wife and family would suffer for allegedly unleashing terror on the Gbaramatu people, adding that they, the intelligence unit of the Avengers, had his full data and knew where all his assets were located in the Niger Delta.

And to Major M.B. Yahaya, the statement read: “We are sure you have not seen real combat before; how did you rose to the rank of a Major?

“This is to show that Nigerian Military is finished if it depends on people like you.

“You are only good at harassing innocent women and children in the name of looking for the Niger Delta Avengers.

“We are not surprised because all Nigerian Military are corrupt. Be assured that we are making this fight personal with you as we shall make your life a living hell.

“Can anyone tell the difference between Major M.B. Yahaya, Brig. Gen Faruk Yahaya, and Boko Haram? We are asking because we cannot spot any difference.”

They called on Amnesty International to take note of the officers who authorized the harassment of the innocent people of Gbaranmatu.

“To the International Oil Companies and Indigenous Oil Companies, it’s going to be bloody this time around.

“Your facilities and personnel will bear the brunt of our fury, which shall fall upon you like a whirling wind,” they added.
