Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), has explained why it resumed attacks on oil installations despite negotiations with the government.

The group said that the government had been displaying a lack of commitment to the dialogue process.

“Sincerely speaking, the High Command of the Niger Delta Avengers cannot be blamed for the continuous bombing of crude oil export pipelines and other oil installations, since the Government has been relentlessly carrying out military build ups to continuously harass communities and indigenes of the Niger Delta after the November 1st meeting of the PANDEF and President Muhammadu Buhari,” NDA said via a statement released by spokesman, Mudoch Agbinibo.

“We see this as a deliberate move by the military establishment to undermine any effort of dialogue and negotiations with the people of the Niger Delta,” it added.
