The region of Niger-Delta has been emerging as a danger zone for militants. The affected states and the federal government have responded to this threat with several strategies raging from the introduction of an amnesty programme to the deployment of security forces, which are dominated by efforts to improve military capabilities, with the aim to deter militancy in the region. Despite these efforts, the Niger-Delta Avengers (ndas) militant group has remained undeterred in the region. Beyond looking at the conventional military power reductionism of militancy in the Niger-Delta region, especially in Ogoniland, this study examines the ndas’ activities in the region. The motivations and capabilities for resurgence of ndas members in the Niger-Delta region are examined along the patterns of distribution of wealth of nations, institutional capacity and stability of the states in the region. The study examines the ndas’ groups in the region with special focus on issues of deprivation and marginalisation of the inhabitants of the region. The study recommends a comprehensive strategy against ndas militant groups in the region.
