Ata Ikiddeh, a former special assistant on diaspora matters to the former Governor of Akwa-Ibom, Godswill Akpabio, has alleged that the militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, is the resistance wing of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ikiddeh also said the Femi Fani-Kayode and the former minister of finance, Nenadi Usman were released as a result of the continued bombing of the militants.

According to Premium Times, he said “I am afraid to admit that – but that’s what this government is turning the Avengers into: the ‘resistance’ wing of the PDP.

“A very dangerous scenario is unfolding. I wouldn’t be surprised if a copycat group in the North becomes the clandestine military wing of APC, not with their permission of course, but this is how these things begin to take shape, they get out of our control, Boko haram is our perfect example.”

Ikiddeh added that all PDP members who are in prison will soon be allowed to go free.

He said “If I tell you all PDP members in detention will be released by the end of July, you’ll wonder where I got that from (I don’t actually know how many there are but I know Omisore was arrested and detained yesterday) – just watch and start counting.

“I am not sure of Dasuki and Kanu, the rumour of a coup has made their releases a security risk to the state. But I wouldn’t be surprised if some kind of House arrest is fangled out for this two.”

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