Abuja - The militant Niger Delta Avengers have threatened further attacks against Chevron, the oil firm it attacked recently.
Mudoch Agbinibo, a Spokesperson of the group, said the attacks would be in protest to plans by the oil firm to carry out repair works at the Valve platform that the militants blew recently.
“We made it clear that no repair works should be done until our demands are fully met,” said Agbinibo.
He accused Chevron of “playing a part with the federal government toundermine the people of the region leaving it to rot.”
“Chevron and Nigeria Government are pushing us to do against our belief,” said Agbinibo.

“Despite making it clear we are not after innocent human lives but as it’s going we might cause human casualties if they don’t listen to us.
“Be informed that if we decides to strike it going to be bloody. And the contracting firm going to do the repair works we want you to know that your facilities and staff will be our first casualties.”
Agbinibo warned Chevron that despite the heavy presence of the military in the creeks, Niger Delta Avengers would continue its onslaught.
“We are ready to destroy more pipelines. We won't only destroy pipelines, but will bring the fight to your tank farm and your Headquarters in Lekki, Lagos. If you continue to undermine us and go ahead with the repair works you won’t see us coming but we are coming for you.”
