The news Niger Delta Avengers terrorist group has announced that it just blew up the NNPC gas and crude trunklines in Batan, Warri south in a latest set of attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta.
The group mocked that the pipeline was “heavily guarded by the military.” We have been unable to confirm and get any figures of casualties if any though the group has proclaimed a policy of no attacks on human lives.
“At 11:45pm on [email protected] blew up other #NNPC Gas and Crude trunkline close to Warri. Pipeline that was heavily guarded by Military,” the group tweeted.
The publicity loving group sent this message out individually to a list of several popular media.
The group had on Wednesday blown up pipelines close to Escravos Tank Farm at Ciera creek, near Abiteye community, Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta State, operated by Chevron Nigeria Limited, cutting power supply to the company.
In a statement on its website, group spokesman “Col. Mudoch Agbinibo” mocked the Nigerian government on children’s day for “failing” to take care of the children of the region. The statement read:
Childhood is an enchanting vista, an endless fun a joyful classroom an experience era of imagination and hope. The children of the Niger delta region is missing by deliberate policies of every successive Nigeria Government. If you plant honesty you will reap trust, if you plant goodness you will reap friendship, if you plant humility you will reap greatness. Childhood means unlimited opportunities for children. This is what the Nigeria government has refuse to give you the children of the Niger Delta. But what they have refused to give to you is what we (Niger delta avengers) are promising you.
Happy Children’s day
