Militants suspected to be the Niger Delta Avengers have blown up the Escravos pipeline again.
The pipeline links Warri to Lagos.
The group began operating since February according to their twitter page, claiming responsibility for bombings at the time including a first strike at the same pipeline.
The group is among other things, demanding the release of pro-Biafra radical group leader, Nnamdi Kanu detained since October.
Another new Niger Delta group, Red Egbesu Water Lions has also just given a 7-day ultimatum to the Nigerian government to among other things, release the same IPOB pro-Biafra leader.
The Niger Delta Avengers’ strikes on Nigerian oil infrastructure has reduced the nation’s output by 800,000 barrels a day and increased global oil prices.

Since I heard Fulani Herdsmen are from Niger and Libya, I won’t be surprised to hear that @NDAvengers are from Equatorial Guinea.
