Abuja - A group of former Niger Delta militants has issued a 14-day ultimatum to oil companies in Ekpeyeland, to vacate the area or face major vandalisation of the oil facilities, Punch reports.
The Ekpeye Liberation Group, who claim to be behind recent attacks on oil installations said that the eviction notice was due to the failure by the oil companies to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Ekpeye communities.

The Ex-militants expressed their outrage at the incompetence of the Nigerian Agip Oil Company, Shell Petroleum Development Company, Nigeria Liquefield Natural Gas and Niger Delta Petroleum Resources to acknowledge the recent killings and kidnappings in the area.
Further oil bombing attacks would further negatively affect an already crippling oil sector in Nigeria.
News24 Nigeria earlier today reported that another militant group has emerged and declared future attacks on oil installations in Niger Delta.
