Avengers back from sabbatical, resumes attacks on Oil Facilities
Weekend’s bombing of Key oil facilities in the country by the Niger Delta Avengers seem to be a statement by the militant group that their holidaying is over. It was earlier reported that the Federal Government had reached an agreement with the Militants and the news was publicized in the National dailies.
It seems however that the Federal Government was too quick to play to the gallery and although it seems they actually had a dialogue with key militant groups, no agreement was reached.
The Niger Delta Avengers, NDA, resumed attacks on oil and gas installations in the Niger Delta region, weekend, blowing up Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Chevron Nigeria Limited, CNL and Nigeria Petroleum Development Company, NPDC crude oil trunk lines and oil wells in Delta State.
