Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on social media, Lauretta Onochie, has suggested ex-President Goodluck Jonathan might be responsible for the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).
2 days ago, the militants issued a statement saying they would resume attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta.
The group had said: “We can assure you that every oil installation in our region will feel the warmth of the wrath of the Niger Delta Avengers.”
Onochie wondered why the recent threat is coming at a time when Jonathan is wanted as a witness in a money laundering trial involving ex-spokesman of PDP, Olisa Metuh.
“A Nigerian court insists (former) president Jonathan appear before it and the Niger Delta Avengers come alive! Still wondering who owns the NDA?” she wrote.
Onochie hinted that the NDA coming alive — after it suspended attacks due to a peace deal with the government — could be connected to the court’s insistence on Jonathan’s appearance.
