JUST IN: Militants Blew Up NPDC pipelines in Delta

Some gunmen suspected to be Niger Delta militants, have reportedly attacked facilities belonging the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC).

On Friday, August 19, the suspected militants blew up two pipelines belonging to the NPDC in Delta state. Vanguard reports that the attack which occurred at about 2am on Friday, was said to have been carried out by a new militant group, Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM).


According to the report, a technical team of NPDC and security officials have been despatched to the affected area to contain the spill. Meanwhile, a Niger Delta militant group, Oyobio-Oyobio has warned that it is going to carry out its threat following the expiration of its seven-day ultimatum.

Vanguard reports that the group had warned Mobil Producing Nigeria to relocate its headquarters from Lagos to Akwa-Ibom or face their wrath. General Obuma Oyobio who is the leader of the group said since the threat has expired without the company making the move to relocate; it will start bringing down aeroplanes.

“We hereby give a seven-day ultimatum to Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited and other oil firms operating in Akwa Ibom State to relocate their headquarters to the state or face dire consequences.

“We have the capability to burn down any tank farm and bring down aeroplanes and choppers. Oil and gas pipelines will not be spared during our operations.”
