The NDGJM also slammed the military, saying the ongoing Operation Crocodile Smile is a failure.

According to reports, the facility, which is located in Ughelli-Delta state, was blown up on Sunday, September, 18, 2016, by 11:30 pm.

They said “This is to you, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai, let you crocodile continue to smile, your time of reckoning is at hand, probably by the time the smiling crocodile finally sinks, you will see its tears and blood.

“Under your nose, the very task of guarding oil assets (which we consider a waste of time, resources and a failure of priorities) will fail because you are both insincere and incompetent.”

The militant groups also threatened oil companies who believe in the military, saying “We have observed that you have placed your trust in the guns and fighter jets of the Nigerian armed forces, our words for you are few: keep at it and wait for your rewards, which have almost come upon you. It is a reflection of your minds towards our people; you obviously do not believe that the people of this part are deserving of good lives. You hide behind the guns of the oppressors to pillage our lands and our people, leaving us despoiled and our lands raped. You do all manners of things you will dare not imagine in other parts of the world where you operate.

“Here, you have failed all basic corporate social responsibilities, leaving the people to languish in lack and ruin. Continue with your insolence against our people, but we will vow to you today that we shall uproot every asset and facility you think you have secured with soldiers and their guns.

“Shorelines, First Hydrocarbon, NPDC, Seplat, Total E&P, Shell, Agip, Saipem, Mobil and co wait for us, we are just coming out for you.”

The militant group swore to continue attacking oil pipelines, until the Federal Government, takes ‘appropriate steps’.

“The Operation Crocodile Tears is not slowing down, but determined to achieve target. Until the federal government takes the proper steps, this song will continue to play.

“This is to once again emphasize our earlier revelation that the so-called Operation Crocodile Smile is nothing but a scam: some jumbled job, sewn together to retire some recently embezzled military budget.

“Were it a serious endeavor, as the entire military system has sought to bamboozle Nigerians and the entire world to believe, the half-baked operation would have at least been reaping marginal results, besides those wrong arrests, lacking in intelligence that it had realized,” it said.

The Nigerian police recently freed 14 kidnapped oil workers who were abducted in the oil rich region.
