The Avengers have however denied meeting with him in a new statement released, saying Solomon Dalung met with fraudsters. According to their spokesperson, Brig. Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, 'Niger Delta fraudsters' defrauded the Minister.
"Niger Delta Avengers can’t stoop so low to send representatives to meet with a common Minister of youths that doesn’t know his work. Minister of Youths and Sports, Solomon Dalung has been defrauded and played by Niger Delta Fraudsters. He didn’t have any meeting with us (Niger Delta Avengers). Lets make this clear, any meeting with Niger Delta Avengers that the International communities are not part to witness, we (Niger Delta Avengers) will not be part of any such dialogue as well" - the statement read.
