Metro Sponsors of Niger Delta Delta Avengers Revealed [See Names]

A group that recently split from Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), a militant organization that has claimed responsibility for bombing numerous oil facilities, has revealed sponsors of the Avengers.

According to SaharaReporters, Cynthia Whyte, an alias for a male spokesman, the splinter group also named several former and serving governors as sponsors of the Niger Delta Avengers.

Those named as “sponsors” included

- Former President, Goodluck Jonathan as grandpatron

- Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers State

- Seriaki Dickson of Bayelsa.

- Senator Godswill Akpabio, a former governor of Akwa Ibom State,

- ex-militant turned contractor, Government Ekpemupolo (alias Tompolo),

- Raymond Dokpesi, the founder of African Independent Television (AIT),

- The Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Kingsley Kuku, Kimi Angozi, and Patrick Akpobolokemi as other sponsors.


The splinter group, which renamed itself Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA), had recently declared its opposition to NDA’s destruction of oil infrastructure in the region, warning that it would disclose the names of individuals and groups backing the militant group.

Mr. Whyte’s statement revealed that the NDA’s sympathizers included Edwin K. Clark, Tony Uranta, Daniel Alabrah, Ms. Annkio Briggs, and Olisa Metuh, a former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Reformed Niger Delta Avengers named Oyege Nimi Brown, VIP Timothy, Joshua Macaiver, Paul Bebenimibo and others as the main operatives of the NDA, adding that Udengs Eradiri, the president of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), also known as Brigadier General Murdoch Agbinibo, serve as the NDA’s chief spokesman.

Meanwhile, a source close to former President Jonathan told SaharaReporters that there was “no iota of truth to the claim that former President Goodluck Jonathan has a hand in the violence in the Niger Delta.”

The source, who asked not to be identified, said he was in touch with Mr. Jonathan, adding that the former president was considering issuing a formal statement to dismiss the claims made by Mr. Whyte.

This is a calumny. A pitiable attempt at slander.

I. Rest. My. Case.


Can Nigerian leaders get serious for once and start naming names of those involved in funding Book Haram and NDA? Let us stop playing silly games with people's lives!

This particular report reads more like fantasy than reality - maybe they want to blow enough smoke to start a fire!

Well, We should not take any piece of information with levity. Government must step up games and do away with politics.
