Militants Deny Naming Jonathan, Akpabio, Dokpesi, Wike, Tompolo, Others As Sponsors
Spokesperson of the militants have denied issuing any Press Statement
accusing Former President Jonathan, Tompolo, Senator Godswill Akpabio,
Governor Nyesome Wike, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, and others as sponsors of
Niger Delta Avengers.
A recent Press Statement issued had alleged that “A group that recently
split from Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), a militant organization that has
claimed responsibility for bombing numerous oil facilities, has claimed
that former President Goodluck Jonathan was the grand patron of the NDA.”
The Press statement was attributed to “Cynthia Whyte, an alias for a male
spokesman,” and stated that “the splinter group also named several former
and serving governors as sponsors of the Niger Delta Avengers.
Those named as “sponsors” included Governors Nyesom Wike of Rivers State
and Seriaki Dickson of Bayelsa.”
But in an email sent to Pointblanknews.com from “Cynthia Whyte” denied
issuing the Press Statement.
The statement reads:
“Our attention has been drawn to a deceitful, malicious and cantankerous
press release issued by a con-group which calls itself the Reformed Niger
Delta Avengers and signed by a ‘Cynthia Whyte’.
“We wish to inform the Nigerian people and unsuspecting media that both
the name of the signee and the group it represents are a fraud.
“Why would a Goodluck Jonathan want to fund or sponsor the renewed
agitation in the Niger Delta? Will it bring him back to power as President
of a nation as deformed as Nigeria?
“Why would a Nyesom Wike, or any Governor in the Niger Delta for that
matter want to fund militancy in the Niger Delta? Will it increase his
monthly allocation from the center? Would a Governor of that state want to
compound the insecurity issues in his state?
“The contents of that media publication (and any future communication from
that group) should be ignored. It clear that the group represents just how
far a group of people would go to con General Buhari and his many
“God save the Niger Delta.
“Cynthia Whyte, Spokesperson”
