Niger Delta Avengers blow up three pipelines

15 November 2016, 16:33

Delta - Militant group operating in oil-rich region, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) on Tuesday attacked three truck lines operated by Agip, Oando and Shell.

The Avengers in a statement issued by its spokesman Mudoch Agbinibo and made available to NAIJ.com warned that there is doom ahead.

The group said: “At about 11:45pm on November 15, 2016, our Elite Strike Team 03 struck Nembe 1, 2 and 3 truck line operated by Agip, Oando and Shell with supply capacity of 300 000 barrel per day to Bonny export terminal in Bayelsa state".

“This is in response to the so-called ‘Operations Sharkbite’, an art of terrorism commissioned by the tyranny of the Nigerian navy establishment and orchestrated by some elements of the ruling political class to continuously undermine any effort by the Nigerian state to address the legitimate demands of the people of the Niger Delta, and a conspiracy to bloat the accounts of some security contractors and conflict merchants within the party structure of the APC.

“We are only reiterating our strong resolve that, time is running against the Nigerian government, that there is doom ahead. The Nigerian government needs our cooperation more than we need the government.”

The militants further said that they are determined to “continue this war”, adding that it was not against peace, but desired “peace that which comes with honour”.

“We are determined to continue this war by all means necessary, until that environment prevails for a genuine dialogue and negotiations within the framework of the sixteen point key demands presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by PANDEF on the 1st of November 2016,” the statement added.

“We want the peace with honour, we don’t want the peace of our time. Since that moment military was drafted into the Niger Delta as an instrument of suppression to our fatherland against all peaceful protest and legitimate demands the fear had gone. The message is getting stronger with more messengers.”
