According to an online Newspaper (The Authority) the Militants of the Ni­ger Delta Aveng­ers (NDA), yes­terday said that they did not hold any closed-door meeting with Minister of State for Petroleum Resourc­es, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu.

Making the clarification in a tweet on their tweeter handle, the group debunked the online report, saying that it did not hold any dialogue with the minister.

According to the militants, anybody that claimed to have represented it at the meeting was a “political jobber.”

Part of the tweet read; “We want to say it’s a lie and anybody parading them­selves as Niger Delta Aveng­ers’ (NDA) representatives are political jobbers.”
