We Will Go After Those Seeking Jonathan’s Downfall – Ex-Militants
A Niger Delta ex-militants’ group, the Reformed Egbesu Avengers, REA, has declared that it will go after those seeking to blackmail former President Goodluck Jonathan.
This is coming following recent reports linking Goodluck Jonathan to the Niger Delta Avengers.
This was contained in a statement issued in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, by the group’s spokesmans, ‘General’ Columbus Okolobo on Saturday.
The Reformed Egbesu Avengers specifically vowed to hunt down the leadership of the RNDA, especially spokesperson Cynthia Whyte, which it said had become the mouthpiece of politicians who are bent on detracting from the ex-president’s ‘rising profile’.
“The lid has blown open over Cynthia Whyte, as Nigerians now understand that same person is the spokesperson for MEND and the RNDA. We urge them to quit acting scripts because they can no longer masquerade, the carpet is off their feet.
‘The cordial relationship between RNDA and other militants groups with security agencies points to the fact there is a romance to hatch devilish allegations and machinations against perceived political foes”, the Egbesu group alleged.
Okolobo refuted allegations that Jonathan met with any militant group before the general election in 2015, stressing that the account was unfounded and fanned by political foes.
