“At about 0300 hours, a gang of armed youths allegedly led by one Suoyou, Iyelawei and Fyneboy, all of Ikienghenbiri community, Southern Ijaw Local Government Area, vandalised a pipeline along the Azuzuama area of the Tebidaba-Brass pipeline with dynamites and ignited fire on the line.

“Through community help, we were able to arrest one of the suspects and identify some of the fleeing suspects. There was a lot of community collaboration. And we are grateful to the community because they don’t like what the armed youth are doing.”

Some suspected militants also bombed a gas pipeline located at Ogbembiri in Southern Ijaw local government area of Bayelsa State, belonging to Agip on Tuesday, May 17, 2016.
