Niger Delta Avengers strikes again; ...blow up Agip ENI oil pipeline in Bayelsa State

Niger Delta militants
The Niger Delta Avengers are on the rampage in Nigeria’s South as they blew up another crude oil pipeline belonging to Agip ENI in Bayelsa State, around 3 a.m. Friday.

Late Thursday Reuters reported an explosion at a pipeline operated by a subsidiary of Nigeria’s state oil company, Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) at Sanomi Creek, around the Ogidigben area of Warri South West, around 8 p.m. local time (1900 GMT).

In its determination to cripple oil production in Nigeria, the group revealed on its Twitter handle @NDAvengers, that it blew up the Obi Brass trunk line belonging to Agip ENI at 3 a.m on Friday.

The Obi Obi Brass trunk line is regarded as Agip’s major crude oil line in Bayelsa State.

“It is good as foreign refineries stop buying Nigeria oil because the Nigeria state has been robbing the Niger Delta of her oil and gas.

“We will inform the international communities when we are open for business,” the Avengers stated.
