Nigerian Army Lied, None Of Our Members Arrested – Niger Delta Avengers

Suspected AvengersThe new militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, which has claimed responsibility for recent bombings of oil and gas installations in the Niger Delta, has denied the Nigerian Army’s claim that its members were arrested.
The 4th Brigade, Nigerian Army, had on Sunday paraded 10 suspected militants specialised in disruption of oil and gas facilities and their weapons, saying they confessed to be members of the Avengers during interrogations.
Refuting the claim via its Twitter handle on Tuesday, the militant group said none of its “strike team” was arrested by the Army.
“Our attention has (been) drawn to the arrest of 10 Niger Delta Avengers’ boys by Nigeria Military. None of our strike team has been arrested”, the group said. “It’s all a lie.”
It also denied that any of its members had been killed, discrediting a claim by the military Joint-Task Force codenamed Operation Pulo Shield, operating in the region.
“Nigeria Military also lied that NDA kill(ed) soldiers. We haven’t engaged in combat with them but if they want us to kill them let them come after us”, it said.
