Militants of the Niger Delta Av e n g e r s (NDA) have threatened to attack expatriates and Nigerians working with oil firms in the oil-rich Niger Delta if they fail to vacate the area.
This is as the militant group, on Wednesday night, blew up other Chevron manifolds in Warri, Delta State with a promise to do more havoc to oil installations in the region. The group, which made the attack known on its website late Wednesday, said it blew up RMP 22, 23 and 24 all in Warri and warned expatriates and Nigerian workers to vacate the area, else they may lose their lives.
In the statement signed by its spokesperson, Brig- Gen. Mudoch Agbinibo, the group said: “Between the hours of 10:50p.m. and 11:10p.m. our (Niger Delta Avengers) strike team blew up Chevron Manifolds which are RMP 22, 23 and 24.”
The group, which wished its readers, a “Happy Eid Mubarak to our Muslim Brothers,” said it was closing all its social network accounts due to activities of scammers and impersonators attributing some sabotages to it.
NDA, however, denied responsibility for the alleged attack on NNPC’s pipeline at Eleme in Rivers State last Saturday and advised other groups carrying out their heinous activities to do so and be manly enough to claim responsibility instead of accusing Avengers falsely. The group, therefore, warned the media to beware of the imposters and always follow its activities only on its website henceforth.
