The Niger-Delta Avengers have refuted allegation by the chief of Army Staff that they have been killing members of the Nigerian military . They alleged that over 50 soldiers died in the creeks because they had no amphibian training and experience adding that the number of dead soldiers would have been up to 100 if not for fishermen who rescued them
They also described as false, claim by the Nigerian Army that some members of the Niger-Delta Avengers were arrested by the military.
In a series of tweets on their twitter handle, the NDA stated that they have not engaged in combat with the military since they commenced their campaign.
