Niger Delta Avengers blow up Chevron Escravos pipeline

25 October 2016, 13:54

Asaba - The Niger Delta Avengers group on Tuesday claimed it attack the Chevron Escravos export pipeline at Escravos offshore

According to the militant group which operates from the Niger Delta region, the attack on the oil company’s pipeline is “to further warn all IOCs’ that when we warn that there should be no repairs pending negotiation/dialogue with the people of the Niger Delta, it means there should be no repairs.”

The statement posted on its website www.nigerdeltaavengers.org which was endorsed by its spokesman, Mudoch Agbinibo, reads:

“Today at about 3:45am, our strike team 06 took down Chevron Escravos export pipeline at Escravos offshore. This action is to further warn all IOCs’ that when we warn that there should be no repairs pending negotiation/dialogue with the people of the Niger Delta, it means there should be no repairs. Any attempt to use dialogue to distract us so as to allow the free flow of our oil will halt the dialogue process.”

News 24 recalls that the group had threatened to resume bombing of oil facilities if government made any further mistake to enter into negotiation with selfish leaders in the region.

The group said the so-called leaders only represented themselves instead of the interest of the people.

It warned that any attempt by the government to engage in any form of dialogue with Niger Delta leaders who had allegedly hijacked the commonwealth of the people for their selfish interest, would be resisted.

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to meet with some leaders of the Niger Delta region on October 31.

Buhari’s meeting with the Pan Niger Delta Forum (PNDF) an amalgamation of monarchs, leaders, groups and stakeholders of the oil rich region was initially slated for October 29 but was rescheduled to October 31 because the first date was Saturday.
