Niger Delta Avengers militant group has announced the blowing up of two more crude oil pipelines.
A tweet this night from their official handle, @NDAvengers, said the devastating attacks took place much earlier in the day.
According to the tweet, “At about 2:00am today @NDAvengers blew up the Ogboinbiri to Tebidaba and Clough Creek to Tebidaba Crude Oil pipelines in Bayelsa State.”
Earlier in the day, a new group, the Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force (JNDLF), had vowed to launch six missiles, shut down Nigeria’s satellite system and enforce a ‘no flight’ operation within the country’s airspace from Tuesday next week.
The group, which said it was working closely with the Niger Delta Avengers, which has claimed responsibility for the destruction of oil and gas facilities in the region, also gave the Nigerian military 48 hours to quit the region or face extermination.
The JNDLF made the threats in a statement sent to journalists in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, signed by ‘General’ Akotebe Darikoro, Commander, General Duties; ‘General’ Torunnanaowei Latei, Creeks Network Coordinator; ‘General’ Agbakakuro Owei-Tauro, Pipelines Bleeding Expert; and ‘General’ Pulokiri Ebiladei of its Intelligence Bureau.
While accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of deciding to break up the country by his actions, the new group noted that its Joint Revolutionary Council (JRC) which it claimed is the highest organ of all the freedom fighting bodies, has endorsed a 15-point agenda.
