Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has slammed the Niger Delta Avengers saying they are fighting for their selfish purpose.

Osinbajo also said the militants are fighting for their pockets and not for the Niger Delta region as they claim.

The Vice-President blamed the militant group for the economic downturn in the country.

He said  “The Niger Delta Avengers are not freedom fighters, they are not fighting for any freedom, they only fight for their pockets. You can’t be blowing up pipelines and compound the problem of the region and be saying you are fighting for freedom.

“It is not acceptable for anybody under any guise to be vandalising and say they are avenging, that is not acceptable.”

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said this while delivering a lecture titled: “The Future: Here Earlier Than We Thought”, at the second Foundation’s Day Lecture of the Elizade University, Ilara Mokin in Ondo State.
