Niger Delta militants

Three oil workers have been killed by suspected members of the Niger Delta Avengers militant group at an oil field operated by the Nigerian Agip Oil Company in Bayelsa State.

The victims, comprising two engineers and a driver, were ambushed and killed while carrying out repair work on Agip pipelines destroyed some weeks ago by Niger Delta Avengers.

The incident occurred on Wednesday at the oilfield located in the creeks of Nembe around Obama flow station.

A source in the community said that the area is notorious for gunmen who operate freely and that the gunmen who carried out the attack are believed to be sea pirates.
