Ayiri Urges Buhari To Probe 22 Nigerians Named as Avengers' Sponsors

Listen to article

The federal government has been urged to probe the 22 Nigerians listed by

a faction of Niger Delta Avengers, the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers

(RNDA) as sponsors of the renewed militancy in the region.

A prominent activist and Itsekiri chief, Ayiri Emami, urged the President

Muhammadu Buhari not to take the revelation lightly, but should dig into

it with a view to exposing the alleged sponsors, members and sympathizers

of the rampaging militant group.
Emami who is a stalwart of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in

Delta state, said the revelation has strongly backed his stance that

corrupt politicians were behind the nefarious activities of the group.

In a statement made available to in Warri, he said:

“The revelation by the splinter group of Niger Delta Avengers about the

sponsors of Niger Delta Avengers has vindicated my earlier position that

some corrupt politicians running away from justice are the brains behind

the criminal group.
“Nigerians should not take the report with a pinch of salt and President

Muhammadu Buhari should ensure that the fresh revelation is properly

investigated with a view to bringing all those behind the economic and

political sabotage to book.
“I say so emphatically because these failed and corrupt politicians are

determined to bring down the economy of Nigeria and rubbish the President

Buhari's administration before gullible Nigerians''.

He advised the federal government not to allow any of them escape the long

arms of justice by negotiating their ways out of the messy allegations.

However, former President Goodluck Jonathan named as the grand patron of

the Niger Delta Avengers has denied the allegation even as the likes of

Godswill Akpabio, Tompolo, Nyesome Wike, Raymond Dokpesi, among others

have been named in the list.
