Jonathan accused of sponsoring violence

Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has been accused of sponsoring Niger Delta Avengers, a militant group claiming responsibility for the recent attacks on oil pipelines, and security operatives.

The National President, National Coalition of Niger Delta Ex-Agitators, NCNDE-A, Israel Akpodoro, leveled this allegation against the immediate past Nigeria’s president in a statement he issued on Friday in Abuja.

The statement reads in part: “The Niger Delta Avengers is a creation of the ex president aimed at thwarting any efforts made by successive administration especially that of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, administration.

“The former President created the monster-Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, and he alone can call them to order and that is what my group is asking him to do.

“Nigerians should hold the Ijaw leader responsible for any possible collateral damage that may be incurred in the process of exterminating that destructive rag tag group with all its sympathisers in the region.

“Our common enemies in the Niger Delta region are those governors, ministers, Special Advisers, Director Generals, Senators and other representatives from the region who participated in government and use their offices to enrich themselves at the detriment of general good.

“We must redirect our anger to those who cornered the dividends of democracy in the region buying fleet of aeroplanes, building mansions in choices cities of the world…while their people live in abject poverty.

“President Buhari isn’t our problem but our leaders from the region,” Akpodoro said.
