The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the minister of state for petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu of giving $10m bribe to representatives of the Niger Delta Avengers.

The PDP on the Twitter page, alleged that Kachikwu met with some members of the militant group at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.

The party also said the minister pleaded with the boys who were at the meeting to prevail on their colleagues to stop bombing offshore facilities.

 

 

 

The new militant group, Niger Delta Avengers claimed responsibility for the recent bombing of offshore oil facilities.

The group also vowed to carry out more bombings if the Federal Government does not meet their demands.

The militants also said their goal is the attainment of a sovereign state of Niger Delta.

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) and other ex militants have also condemned the new group, calling on them to give the Buhari led administration some time to fufill the promises it made to the Niger Delta people.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, has however dismissed the claims of the Niger Delta Avengers, describing them as criminals.
