As the Niger Delta Avengers south based terror oganisation announced the bombing of yet another Chevron oil infrastructure, the group denied any discussions with the Nigerian administration.
The group tweeted:
“This is to the Gen. public we’re not negotiating with any Committee. if Fed Govt is discussing wth any group they’re doing that on their own.”
The group further tweeted:
“At 1:00am today, the @NDAvengers blow up Well RMP 20 belonging to Chevron located 20 meters away from Dibi flow Station in Warri North local government area.”
A Vanguard source confirmed the attack that affected crude oil pipeline is between Opia and Dagbolo villages in Warri North. The attack is in spite of the declaration of a two-week ceasefire 48 hours earlier by the Federal Government to create a window for dialogue with militants. Confirming the attack, a security source said: “Yes, there was an attack this morning by militants on a Chevron facility.” “The pipeline had earlier been attacked by militants using the same modus operandi which is with the use of dynamite. “The attack was carried out at about 3am this morning,” he added.
