The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has again blown up three major oil installations in a deadly attack yesterday.
This comes hours after Bayelsa Governor Seriake Dickson had described the NDA as a
criminal group, whose activities are sending a wrong signal to foreign investors.
The damaged oil installations are Nembe 1, 2 and 3, Brass to Bonny truck line, belonging to Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) and Shell.
It was gathered that fighters of NDA from Bayelsa had stormed the facilities around 2.00am and detonated dynamites to blow up the facilities.
The Aengers, through its spokesman, Murdoch Agbinibo in a terse statement, claimed responsibility for the attack in continuation of its plan to cripple the economy so as to realize the Niger Delta Republic.
“About 2.15am on Saturday (yesterday), the Niger Delta Avengers blew up Nembe 1, 2 and 3 Brass to Bonny Trunk Line belonging to Agip and Shell.” Expectedly, the latest attack, which is the third in Bayelsa State, would further hurt the economy of the state as its oil output would reduce.”
