Video - Former militant group calls for Avengers to be denounced
Nigeria's Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta --or MEND -- has spoken out against the resolution reached by Niger Delta stakeholders. Efforts are under way to end militants' vandalism of the oil infrastructure in the region. Militant groups, including the Niger Delta Avengers, are calling for a more equal share of the oil wealth among local communities. MEND is angry as the Niger Delta stakeholders have failed to denounce the Avengers' activities. The group is preparing to tour the region to solicit support for President Muhammadu Buhari's administration.
