Olisa MetuhA former spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Olisa Metuh, has denied having links with the Niger Delta Avengers or any militant group.

He was reacting to a statement by one Cynthia Whyte, on behalf of the Reformed Niger Delta Avengers, RNDA, at the weekend, in which his name and that of several other prominent Nigerians, including former President Goodluck Jonathan, was mentioned as being sponsors of the NDA.

The NDA has claimed responsibility for bombing of oil and gas installations in the Niger Delta and has vowed not to relent until its mission to bring Nigeria’s crude oil production to zero level, is attained.

Dr. Jonathan, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and former Akwa Ibom State Governor now Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, who were mentioned as NDA sponsors, have also issued separate statements to denounce the claim and any ties to militancy.

In his own statement, Metuh called on security agencies to immediately investigate and arrest the author of the statement linking him with the militant group and ensure that they got to the root of the matter.

The former PDP spokesman, who is standing trial for charges bordering on money laundering, described the attempt to link him with militancy as “wicked, cruel and devilish”.

According to him, it was wrong for anyone to link an innocent person with militancy at a time the nation was facing serious security challenges.

Metuh continued: “For the avoidance of doubt, I hereby state categorically that I do not have any relationship or association whatsoever either as a sympathizer or sponsor of any militant group, including the Avengers.

“I therefore find it very cruel that any person would in any manner whatsoever attempt to associate my name with anything to do with this group or its operations and I still wonder what the motive behind this sinister plot is. My only preoccupation now remains matters concerning my health and extant court trial as I continue to conduct my affairs with dignity and single-mindedness”.
