Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has called for foreign mediators to broker talks with the Nigerian government to end conflict in the Niger Delta region.
The Niger Delta Avengers in a statement said it wanted multinational oil companies operating in the country to “commit independent mediators to this proposed dialogue” to “bring about a lasting peace”.
Since its formation, the group has carried out a wave of attacks on pipelines in the Niger Delta region, causing a sharp fall in oil production in Nigeria.
This has further plunged the Nigerian economy into more trouble.
