Militants Blow Up NPDC Oil Facility In Delta State

Unrepentant Niger Delta militants, Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, have attacked a major crude oil delivery line belonging to the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company in Delta.

The unfortunate incident occurred on Sunday night at about 11:30pm around Ekuigbo, Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state.

Spokesman of the militant group, Aldo Agbalaja, claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement issued on Monday.

Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate described as “waste of resources” the use of military men to guard oil and facilities in the region, adding such would never yield any positive result.

The federal government is yet to react.
