Militants in the Niger-Delta have blown up the Chevron Valve Platform in Abiteye, Warri North council area of Delta State.

This is coming on the heels of a threat by Niger Delta Avengers to bomb more crude oil facilities.

The militant group has claimed responsibility for the bombing and issued a statement saying “We want to pass this message to the all international oil companies operating in the Niger Delta that the Nigeria Military can’t protect their facilities. They should talk to the federal government to meet our demands else more mishaps will befall their installations.

 “Until our demands are met, no repair works should be done at the blast site.”

A source from the Department of State Services (DSS), who confirmed the incident to Vanguard, said the militants totally destroyed the platform using dynamites.

The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA)  threatened to cripple Nigeria’s economy if President Buhari does not hold a Sovereign National Conference for Nigerians to choose whether they still want to stay together.
