The militant group, Niger Delta Avengers has warned oil giant, ExxonMobil not to repair it pipeline in Qua Iboe- Akwa-Ibom state.

The militant group also threatened to attack any worker who tries to fix the pipeline which they blew up recently.

ExxonMobil spokesman, Todd Spitler had earlier denied reports that the militants bombed its pipeline.

Daily Post reports that the militant group’s spokesman, Mudock Agbinibo said  “We are warning ExxonMobil not to carry out any repair work on the blown pipeline, if they refuse and go ahead with any repair work, something big and worse will happen.

“To the traders/international refineries doing business with them, do not let ExxonMobil deceive you that the repair work will take three to four weeks, with the level of damage. it will take them (ExxonMobil) months to fix it.

“What happened to Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) crude oil export pipeline in Forcados is an example to all International Oil Companies, IOCs, no repair works until the federal government heed to our demands.

“If ExxonMobil fails to listen to us (Niger Delta Avengers), your personnel are going to be our next casualties, not pipelines.”

The militants allegedly blew up a gas pipeline in PZ Estate in the Ogijo area of Ogun State.
