– Niger Delta Avengers return with a new website www.nigerdeltaavengers.org
– The militant group former website www.nigerdeltavengers.com had gone offline
– The launch of the new website comes barely 24 hours after the old website was shut down Just hours after media reports had showed that the website of the Niger Delta Avengers, www.nigerdeltavengers.com had become inaccessible to the public, the militant group have launched a new website, www.nigerdeltaavengers.org.
NAIJ.com recalls that the militant group had promoted its attacks on oil installations in the Niger Delta, through the former website before it was shutdown. However, the group on Sunday, June 5, stated via its Twitter handle (@NDAvengers) that its old website was never shutdown, but underwent maintenance. Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari is reportedly studying the gazette signed by late President Umaru Yar’Adua on the Niger Delta crisis as one of the possible ways of resolving the growing menace of the Niger Delta Avengers. The Punch reports that the main aim of revisiting the gazette is to ensure that all the agreements contained in the document were implemented by the federal government.
This was disclosed by the special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina.
