Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has blown up an oil facility belonging to Chevron Nigeria Limited in Delta State.

The offshore Export Pipeline is specifically located at Escravos in the Warri South-West Local Government Area of the state.

NDA announced the bombing via a tweet posted by its spokesperson, Brig Gen Mudoch Agbinibo.

“Today at about 3:45am, our strike team 06 took down Chevron Escravos export pipeline at Escravos offshore,” he wrote.

 

“This action is to further warn all IOCs’ that when we warn that there should be no repairs pending negotiation/dialogue with the people of the Niger Delta, it means there should be no repairs. Any attempt to use dialogue to distract us so as to allow the free flow of our oil will halt the dialogue process,” he added.
