The group also accused President Buhari of denying indigenes of Niger Delta ownership of oil blocs when he was the petroleum minister.

The Daily Sun reports that the IYC President, Udengs Eradiri, said “One of the most salient issues which if not addressed will lead to more crisis is the issue of the oil blocs.

“Oil blocs were shared to one group. Look at it, either the person (owner of oil bloc) was a former military president or relative of the military president or an in-law to a military president.

“That is one of the biggest issues that, if not addressed, there will be more Niger Delta Avengers, you will see groups and groups that will spring up until the issue is addressed.”

The Ijaw group known for its vocal pronouncements, has debunked claims that former President Goodluck Jonathan is the founder of the new militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).

They also threatened to resist any attempt by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to arrest the ex-president.
