Former, current Governors working with Niger Delta Avengers to make FG drop charges – Group

The Chairman of a group known as the Warri Study Group, WSG, Edward Ekpoko has alleged that some serving and current governors with criminal charges are secretly collaborating with the militants in a bid to make the Federal Government drop the charges against them.
Disclosing this in a statement, Ekpoko urged the Federal Government not to stoop low by negotiating with Niger Delta Avengers or any other militant group.
The statement reads, “Politicians, including an ex-governor of Delta State and militants have continued to use this neglect to blackmail the Federal Government as a reason for the renewed crisis. But who is to be held responsible.
“Politicians, especially some governors (both serving and former) and their cronies from the Niger Delta are hands in glove with the militants and are openly and secretly advocating dialogue with them so as to (through them) have criminal charges against them dropped.
“The militants are well known to some of them (governors) to the knowledge of Niger Deltans. Government should keep them under watch. Let us get it right: who are the Avengers? Tompolo has denied them, but do we believe him when they want his account de-frozen? MEND has denied them, they are used by those who created them.
“To dialogue with them is tantamount to open discussion with corrupt politicians from the region that have forced the pathetic conditions of life that now pervade the Niger Delta. All they want is to bargain themselves from investigation and trial.”
