There is a crack in the ranks of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA).

This came to the fore as a splinter group renounced its membership of the dreaded and destructive Niger Delta Avengers and embraced dialogue, promising to expose other members of the group and their sponsors.

THISDAY gathered that the splinter group was pissed off by the hard-line posture of the major Commanders of the militant body towards having talks with the Federal Government in finding lasting solutions to the problems of the region.

One Cynthia Whyte had said in a statement that some members of the Niger Delta Avengers had renounced violence in the agitation (against) the underdevelopment of the region and were denouncing their membership of the militant group.

Also, the Niger Delta Avengers said in a statement issued on Saturday night that its household is still intact.

According to the statement signed by its spokesman, Mudoch Agbinibo, the purported split is the imagination of government agents and agencies with “delusional disorder”.

“The thinking to lure the public to another lie of spirit in the Niger Delta Avengers is only the ways of government agents and agencies with delusional disorder. This is teresult of a government and security agencies that are only becoming childish everyday for engaging drug addicts, bank robbers, sea pirates, falling political angels and charlatans to undo the Niger Delta people our genuine desire to self determination and resource control”, it said.
