The Niger Delta Avengers have maintained their destruction of pipelines in the region.
The militants reportedly blew up two oil installations in Bayelsa State, namely, SPDC forcados 48″ Exportline and Brass to Tebidaba crude oil line.
News of their latest effort was contained in their tweeter handle @NDAvengers on Friday morning which read:
“At 3:00 am today @NDAvengers blow up the SPDC forcados 48″ Exportline. We warned SPDC not to go ahead with repair works but they refuse.
“At about 3:30am our (@NDAvengers ) strike team Blow up the Brass to Tebidaba Crude oil line in Bayelsa.. #BOOM”
According to the militants, “This is inline with our promise to all international Oil companies and Indigenous Oil Companies that Nigeria Oil production will be Zero.”
Just yesterday, on the eve of the flag-off of the clean-up of Ogoni land, the Joint Revolutionary Council (JRC), another militant group, gave operatives of the Nigerian army 48 hours ultimatum to leave the region.
According to the group, if after 48 hours the soldiers still operate in the region they will declare a full blown war against the soldiers.
The group, however, denied any involvement in the recent attacked on a military houseboat that allegedly killed two soldiers at Efe-Ugbokodo area in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State.
In a statement on their website, signed by the Spokesperson, Brid. Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, the group wrote:
We Didn’t attack any Military Houseboat
The Niger Delta Avengers were not involved in the attack of the Military houseboat around Warri, Delta State.
Killing of sleeping Soldiers is not our style.
We promise the world that in this Process of liberating our People, not a single blood of Nigeria soldiers will be wasted despite the provocation.
Even the Inhumane Nigeria, soldiers are exempted. Our war is on Oil installations not to take innocent lives.
For the fact we can’t give Life, we also don’t have the power to take any life.
But we (Avengers) are assuring the Families of the affected soldiers that we will bring the culprits to book.
When it’s time to face the military in combat let the whole world know that we won’t be the ones to throw the first punch.
This message is going to all groups parading themselves as freedom fighters.
You can fight for your people without killing innocent souls NDA have proved it.
We were able to drop Nigeria Oil production from two million Barrels to just 800,000 barrels without killing a soul.
We are warning every group to follow our footsteps. The days of Killing and Kidnapping are over.
