Militants threaten to blow up more pipelines

The group had earlier claimed responsibility for an attack on the Forcados Terminal Pipeline in Delta State

 

A militant group, Nigeria Delta Avengers has reportedly vowed to blow up oil facilities in the region if its demands are not met by the Federal Government.

The group had earlier claimed responsibility for an attack on the Forcados Terminal Pipeline in Delta State, Vanguard reports.

The latest threat was made via a statement released by the group and obtained by Vanguard.

It reads:

“Shell Petroleum Development Company, SPDC, Forcados terminal is our latest casualty. There are many more to follow in the days and weeks ahead.”

“The same factor that brought about the Niger Delta arms struggle is fast resurfacing as the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is poised to exterminate Niger Delta people for being benevolent enough to allow the nation’s mono-economy thrive on our oil.”

“We are being oppressed, pushed to the wall on various fronts, which is why we have picked up the challenge to be the outlaws this government will have to contend with till daily production of oil is reduced to zero in the Niger Delta, so government can use the oil from the North to run Nigeria’s mono-economy.”

“We believe that Nigeria can practice true federalism where our resources will be controlled by us and used for our own good. The reverse is the case today, where the goose that lays the golden egg is killed along with the egg.”
