Metro Our Ex Commanders Created Niger Delta Avengers - MEND

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has alleged that some of its former commanders and fighters make up the Niger Delta Avengers, claims which have been denied by the group.

Reuters say security officials have also linked a MEND commander to the Avengers, though he denies this.

MEND has also urged the Avengers to come to the negotiation table with the government, saying it had already formed its own negotiation team.

The Avengers has been responsible for the recent attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta.

MEND was one of largest militant groups until it signed up for a government amnesty in 2009.
