Metro Nigeria Navy Records Major Breakthrough Against Niger Delta Avengers - ThisDay



The Nigerian Navy has achieved a major breakthrough against Niger Delta Avengers militants responsible for blowing up oil installations in the country, a report from ThisDay says.

Two active members of the group, Felix Miyenminiya, 53, and Stanley Jongha, 35, were arrested last Thursday in Sapele by the Navy in conjunction with other security agencies after intensive surveillance on the suspects, the report said.

It added that the arrested militants were responsible for numerous attacks on Chevron Nigerian Limited (CNL) facilities in the Warri North LGA of Delta state between the months of May and July.

Navy Commander, Commodore Joseph Dzunye said the suspects "have provided useful information and I assure you that the Nigerian Navy and other security agencies remain committed to apprehending those behind all forms of criminal activities in the Nigerian maritime domain.”
