Dickson denies link with Niger Delta Avengers

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Bayelsa State on Thursday reacted to the accusation by the All Progressives Congress (APC) linking governor Henry Seriake Dickson with the sponsorship of the new militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), describing it as laughable, reports ITRealms.

The Bayelsa State chairman of PDP, Moses Cleopas in a press statement available to correspondent, said the antecedents of the APC with a dislocated leadership, it was not a surprise that the factional leaders couldn't bring peace to the party.

"Dickson had presided over series of meetings this week that was attended by multi-nationals, security chiefs, traditional rulers and other stakeholders where he openly condemned renewed attacks on oil facilities ‎and security personnel and ask if the APC or its leader have issued any statement doing same, well it is not a surprise to us as their desire is obviously geared towards diverting the attention of security agencies to their direction as sponsors of these heinous crimes.

"The allegation is the height of mischief, we want Bayelsans and the federal government to ignore such blatant lie. Governor Dickson does not have any business with any militant group. He remains committed to his mandate given to him by the people. The APC is seeking unnecessary public sympathy, and cheap attention."

Further, they called on Chief Timipre Sylva to go and ask God for forgiveness, stressing that the Bayelsa APC has a history of violence.

“As factional leader of APC, his group perpetrated sundry extra-judicial killings using the instrument of State power. His defunct administration was a short-hand for death. Bayelsans are still trying to heal the wounds inflicted by Sylva's killer outfit code-named Operation Famou Tangbei. We urge them to ask for mercy from God for all the atrocities they have perpetrated against the same people they wanted to govern,” PDP chairman said.
