13 September 2016, 18:16

Delta - Suspected Niger Delta militants have attacked oil delivery line belonging to the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company crossing Afiesere-Iwhrenene communities in Delta State.

The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, one of the groups operating in the area, took responsibility for the incident, which happened at about 1:00 am on Tuesday.

The group through a statement bu its spokesperson, Aldo Agbalaja confirmed its involvement in the attack.

The group threatened to carry out more attacks, stating that the recent one was part of its ‘Operation Crocodile Smile’ exercise.

It said, “As a mark of our faith to totally grounding the Nigerian oil economy, the gallant “Opudo” strike forces brought down the Afiesere- Iwhrenene major delivery line in Ughelli North, leading to the UPS/UQCC operated by NPDC/SHORELINES at about 1am today 13th September 2016.

“The Niger Delta is not a conquered territory and our people have never succumbed to intimidation before, rather we match force with the oppressor’s brutality.

“The Nigerian government should already know that the people of this part are not fools, who will not be able to see when they are being treated with disdain.”

It also reiterated its warning that Nigerians living close to oil pipelines leave immediately to avoid being injured.

“For the last time, leave these areas if you live around them and if you love your lives,” it said.
