FOLLOWING the purported arrest of 10 suspected members of the rampaging NDA, the group has come out to deny the claim by the Nigerian Army.
The group, in its Twitter handle, @NDAvengers, on Tuesday morning, said none of its strike team was in the kitties of the Nigerian troops.
The tweet read: “@NDAvengers: Our attention has been drawn to the arrest of 10 @NDAvengers boys by Nigeria military.
“None of our strike team has been arrested; it’s all a lie.”
The group also denied the killing of any Nigerian troop as widely claimed by the military, warning that if the Nigerian Armed Forces are actually ready for a combat, they should first confront them.
Contrary to the news that only three soldiers died last weekend after they drowned in Bayelsa State, the militants had also claimed that no fewer than 50 troops actually lost their lives.
NDA, which made this known on its Twitter handle: @NDAvengers, on Tuesday, said the Chief of Army Staff deployed personnel on a suicide mission because they lacked amphibian training to navigate in the creeks.
The group said but for the swift help of local fishermen, the death rate would have reached 100.
It accused the army chief of selling a dummy to President Buhari that its members were killing soldiers.
“This is our stand: we have not killed soldiers. If we do, we will claim responsibility because we take proud and responsibilities in all we are doing. That is our code,” the NDA’s tweet read.
