Meanwhile the Niger Delta Avengers claimed responsibility for the recent attack on the NPDC manifold and two other attacks on crude oil trunk lines in Delta state.

The Avengers posted on social media site, Facebook to claim responsibility for the attacks while giving the exact time that the attacks were done.

It is also believed that militants attacked a pipeline surveillance team who had responded to the blasts. No casualties were reported.
