In yet another brazen act, the Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, Friday morning, bombed a crude oil pipeline belonging to Agip ENI in Bayelsa state.
This was disclosed by the NDA on its twitter handle, @NDAvengers.
The group tweeted: “3:am of Friday @NDAvengers blow up the Obi Obi Brass Trunk line belonging to Agip ENI. It is Agip’s major crude oil Line in Bayelsa State.”
The militant group also applauded the none purchase of oil from Nigeria in another tweet.
“It is good as foreign refineries stop buying Nigeria oil because the Nigeria state has been robbing the Niger Delta of her oil and gas.
“We will inform the international communities when we are open for business”, the militant group said in the tweet.
The latest action of the Avengers may deepen the current economic woes of the country, as latest statistics show that Nigeria recently lost 130,000bpd, translating to N1.3 billion per day as Shell shut the Trans Niger Pipeline, TNP, after a leak was discovered.
