Commander Bibi Oduku, the commandant general, Riverine Security (Coast Guard of the Federation), has revealed the identity of militants bombing oil installations in Delta state under the cover of Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).

According to him, the NDA hails from Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri Southwest local government area of the state.

Oduku also fingered an ex-militant leader, who he accused of “aiding and abetting criminals in their community in the recent attack on oil and gas installations within and outside the kingdom,” Vanguard reports.

He said:

“Investigation by our security outfit has shown that NDA, which has claimed responsibility for the recent attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta are from Gbaramatu kingdom.”

Oduku also tasked traditional rulers, community leaders and well- meaning Niger- Deltans to denounce the activities of group as devilish, advising youths in the region not to join this group and other militia groups.
 
However in a swift response, the Ijaw leader from Gbaramatu kingdom, Chief Godspower Gbenekama, said:
“Gbaramatu people are not part of Niger Delta Avengers, which took responsibility for the recent bombing of oil installations in the state and can never be part of them. We condemn their actions and are against pipeline vandalism of any sort. So, we do not see why the army should turn our community to a hunting ground.
 
“Those who are disgruntled that Tompolo issued a statement against the activities of the group should not make Gbaramatu a battlefront. Tompolo has every right to denunciate the so-called Niger Delta Avengers because they are creating trouble for him, Gbaramatu and Ijaw people as whole.”
 
Meanwhile, it was learnt that after attacks on government installations, members of NDA have gone underground following a massive manhunt for them by the Army, Navy and other security agencies.
