Militant group blows up pipeline, rejects N’Delta meeting with Buhari

31 October 2016, 13:04

Asaba - Niger Delta Greenland Justice Movement (NDGJM) has claimed responsibility of the attack on the 32-inch Effurun-Otor delivery line in Ughelli area of Delta State.

The militant group blew up the pipeline to announce its rejection of Tuesday’s meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and some leaders of the region.

The spokesperson of the militant group, Aldo Agbalaja in a statement, said the attack is in continuation of the group's Operation Hammurabi Code, which is aimed at destroying more oil pipelines and facilities in the oil rich region.

The attack on the 32-inch pipeline was carried out at about 11:30pm.

It threatened to attack more pipelines in the area if the Federal Government holds a meeting with the Edwin Clark-led Niger Delta delegation.

“We are reiterating our unflinching belief that the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, being coordinated by E.K Clark, is a job and therefore can never get our support.

" Like we said before now, the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate is not opposed to a genuine dialogue between the Federal Government and the real representatives of the various ethnic groups of our region.”

The group said it would bring up a list of people who are genuine to the cause of the Niger Delta and can represent the region at the meeting.
