The Niger Delta Avengers have debunked claims by the Department of State Services (DSS) that its members were arrested.

They also dared the security agency to parade the alleged militants before the press, and allow the boys tell their own story.

A statement signed by the militant group’s spokesman, Brig.Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, reads:

“Reports from National dailies that two suspects Mr Christian Oluba alias Sensor, and Selky Kile Torughedi arrested by DSS are alleged members of Niger Delta Avengers  is laughable, the fact is they are sleeper agents of the DSS sent after the Niger Delta Avengers.

“The boys has the right to demand for their money from DSS, why not pay them instead of arresting and labeling them as Niger Delta Avengers members.

“If  DSS  are denying this, let them allow the suspects to speak to the press. We (Niger Dleta Avengers) don’t have any connection with these boys. We dare the DSS to allow the boys to tell the world their side of the story.

“DSS and Nigeria Army can’t win the Niger Delta war by feeding their President with false information about situation of things in the Region. It’s all-good because as it seems the DSS is now having internal crisis with most of their sleeper agents and it a sign that God is on our side.

“There are problem in the Niger Delta region such as underdevelopment, environmental degradation, lack of infrastructure and the issue of self-determination. These are the areas Mr. President should focus on, not  arresting their allies and linking them to Niger Delta Avengers.

“This is to DSS Director Lawal Daura,  this the holy month of Ramadan and as a Muslim you hold it to Allah and the Nigeria people to say the truth. Why not come out with the truth.

“To the Nigeria press, there is always two sides to a story.  Why not try to get the other side of the story by interviewing the boys

"The Nigeria army will never get us (Niger Delta Avengers), let them go and settle with their sleeper agents and stop deceiving the general public and their President.”
