It looks like the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) are on their own in this so-called fight for the liberation of the oil rich region.

Most of the Niger Delta leaders have come out to denounce and condemn the activities of the militants.

Even the Bayelsa state government has called on the militants to stop bombing offshore oil facilities.

According to Sahara Reporters, ex-militants who fought for the Niger Delta Liberation Force (NDLF), have called on the Niger Delta Avengers to surrender.

The reformed militants also asked Tompolo, who they called a fugitive, to come out of hiding and face the law.

Reports say the spokesman for the ex-militants, Mack Anthony, said "We are appealing to members of the Niger Delta Avengers to surrender and accept dialogue. No group or individual can fight federal Government.”

Anthony also said "We NDLF have staged FG and until today, we are still nursing our wounds. We also appeal to FG to employ internationally accepted military practice in Niger Delta. We recall during our experience, you guys [soldiers] bombed and burned Ayakoromor and killed several innocent persons.

“We repeat once again, pipeline bombers are criminals, fighting a selfish course over failed business empire with the present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari. We will always support Buhari’s administration to succeed just as we supported former President Goodluck Jonathan."

The Niger Delta Avengers, in a Tweet, claimed responsibility for blowing up a Chevron Oil well in Warri, Delta State, despite the heavy presence of the Nigerian military.
