In the new Twitter Account, which bared the same name but a different handle @Real_Ndavengers, the group announced its recent bombings, adding that: “You stop our account but you can’t stop struggle.”

Niger Delta Avengers also accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to remove Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State and replacing him with Uche Ogah, who is allegedly loyal to the party’s fold.
