Metro MEND, Avengers Are Armed Robbers – Niger Delta Youths Disown Militant Groups

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.

“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.
