In a swift reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari claims on Thursday that

the Federal Government was speaking to Niger Delta militants through the

oil companies and security agencies, Niger Delta Avengers said there were

no such peace dialogues.

engaging mercenaries put in place to disrupt the genuine struggle of the

''agitators'', accusing the President of not being sincere with the Niger

Delta people.
The group said if it was going to accept the olive branch from Abuja,

international community must be part of it , advising the government to

stop deceiving the general public as its demands were well articulated.

Its spokesperson, Brigadier Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, stated “Our attention has

been drawn to media report that the President is in touch with Niger Delta

agitators, including the Niger Delta Avengers, but the truth is that we

are not aware of any peace talks.
“If there is any such peace talk, it means the President is talking to their

mercenaries set to disturb the genuine struggle of the agitators.

President Buhari led government is not sincere to the Nigeria people and

their foreign allies.
“If we are to engage in any peace talks, we made it clear that the

international community must be part of it. The President knows our

demands. Therefore, they should stop deceiving the international oil

companies, the general public and the international community.

President Muhammadu Buhari had on Thursday, affirmed that his

administration was dialoguing with Niger Delta militants to ensure

stoppage of the bombings of oil and gas pipelines.
The President spoke through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and

Publicity, Garba Shehu , while granting farewell audience to the outgoing

Ambassador of Germany to Nigeria, Mr. Michael Zinner, at the Presidential

Villa, Abuja.
According to Buhari, the dialogues were being done through oil firms and

law-enforcement agencies and there were meant to find enduring solution to

insecurity in the region, adding his administration was studying the

instruments of the Presidential Amnesty Programme inherited from the

previous administrations so as to implement it to the letter.

“We understand their feelings, we are studying the instruments, we have to

secure the environment otherwise investment will not come. We will do our

best for the country,” Shehu quoted the President as saying.
