The chairman emeritus of the African Independent Television (AIT), Raymond Dokpesi, has denied sponsoring the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).

The RNDA spokesperson, Cynthia Whyte, named former President Goodluck Jonathan, Raymond Dokpesi, Godswill Akpabio, Rivers Governor, Nyesom Wike, and many others.

According to Daily Post, Dokpesi said he had no connection with the militant group that has been linked with the destruction of offshore facilities belonging to oil companies in the Niger Delta region.

The AIT Boss also said “I don’t know who is giving that report; I don’t have any idea; I have never met any Avenger in my life I have no connection, association and I don’t know who they are. I have been committed to strengthening the unity and stability of the country.

“I don’t k know anything pertaining to any Avenger, I don’t know anything about any militant group. I have no connection, no association with any militant group, either on earth or anywhere in the world.”

The Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA) is a break-away faction of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).
