New militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, has again threatened oil firm, Chevron for daring to initiate repair work on its blown Okan Valve platform.
It would be recalled that the militant group claimed responsibility for the attack on the Chevron facility and warning that repair work must not be initiated.
The group, in a statement sent to Ripples Nigeria and signed by its spokesman, Col. Mudoch Agbinibo, threatened to go against its belief by causing human casualties in further attacks if Chevron does stop efforts at carrying out repairs.
The statement reads: “Our investigation reveals Chevron Plc is about to carry out repair works at the Valve platform that was blown by us (Niger Delta Avengers).
“We made it clear that no repair works should be done until our demands are fully met.
“Chevron has been operating in the Niger Delta region for over 40 years and no day has their terminals gone without electricity while the host communities and villages lack all basic amenities (Portable Drinking Water, Schools, Hospitals, Roads, Electricity). They have a pact with the federal government to undermine the people of the region leaving it to rot.
“When we blew the Chevron Valve Platform, it resulted to total blackout in the Escravos Tank farm for more than three hours.  If we (Niger Delta Avengers) can do it, just know that we are capable of bringing down your tank farm if you continue with repair works on the blown valve platform.
“Chevron and the Nigerian government are pushing us to do against our belief. Despite making it clear we are not after innocent human lives but as it’s going, we might cause human casualties if they don’t listen to us.
“Be informed that if we decides to strike, it is going to be bloody. And the contracting firm going to do the repair works, we want you to know that your facilities and staff will be our first casualties.
“Our warning to Chevron is that despite the heavy presence of Military in the creeks, it will not stop us from carrying out our operations. We are ready to destroy more pipelines, we won’t only  destroy pipelines, but will bring the fight to your tank farm and your Headquarters in Lekki, Lagos.
“If you continue to undermine us and go ahead with the repair works you won’t see us coming but we are coming for you”.
