Militants Blast NNPC Pipeline In Fresh Attack

Pipeline bombing......

A militant group known as the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, has said that it has blown up a crude pipeline in Delta state operated by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, a subsidiary of the NNPC.

The group in a statement on Thursday said it carried out the attack on the Unenurhie-Evwreni pipeline “to prove to the wicked and ungrateful multinational oil companies and their Nigerian military allies…that we own our lands.”



    The militants said it bombed the facility in Ughelli, Delta state, at around 01:00 a.m. on Thursday.

    NNPC is yet to deny or confirm the attack.

    It would be recalled that the NDGJM were the only militant group that has never agreed to cease hostilities, and only on Monday, it threatened the Nigerian Army and multinational oil companies to watch out for the “next big statement.”

    The latest pipeline attack is coming less than one week after the Niger Delta Avengers, said it carried out its first attack since declaring a break in hostilities in August to pursue talks with the government.
