Those blackmailing Jonathan will incur our wrath —Splinter Avengers

AS the speculations over the involvement of former President Goodluck Jonathan continue to gather criticism and denials from Niger Deltans, a new splinter group from the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) with the name ‘Reformed Egbesu Avengers’ (REA), on Saturday, threatened to go after those behind what they  called ‘smear campaign’ against the former president.

The group, which said it was cutting away from the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers (RNDA), an offshoot of the NDA, said those linking Jonathan with the current militancy in the region would incur their wrath.

The new group’s latest outburst is coming as there was reported growing tension in the camps of the ex-militants as splinters groups continue to pull away from the main group as politics, personal interest and disagreement threatened to tear them apart.

In a statement issued in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, by the group’s Spokesman, ‘General’ Columbus Okolobo, REA specifically pledged to hunt down the leadership of the RNDA, which it said had become the mouthpiece of politicians who are bent on beclouding the ex-president’s ‘rising profile’.
