Militant groups in the Niger Delta under the aegis of the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA) Tuesday condemned as “sponsored” and “Selfish plots” the series of protest against the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Prof. Nelson Branbaifa.
The RNDA, after a crucial meeting with its various unit commanders from across the Niger Delta region chaired by the leader, Major General Johnmark Ezonebi AKA Obama, announced that preliminary investigations into the reasons for series of protests against the NDDC and its management showed that those behind it are disgruntled and directionless.
The RNDA, in a statement issued Tuesdayand made available to newsmen in Yenagoa, said the appointment of Professor Nelson Brambaifa as the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission NDDC is commendable.
“We condemn in strong terms the protest by self-acclaimed third face or fifth face ex militants against the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission.
They are a set of disgruntled, criminally minded, misinformed people who have lost their place in the genuine agitation in the struggle hence they are directionless that embarked on a journey for selfish gains designed by their corrupt sponsors,” they said .
