Militants attack another NPDC facility in Delta

The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM) yesterday blew up the Oviri-Otor trunkline in Delta State in the latest attack on oil and gas facilities in the region by militants.

The group claimed responsibility for the destruction, just 24 hours after attacking a trunk line linking the Quality Control Centre (QCC) in Ughelli.

Spokesperson for NDGJM, Aldo Agbalaja, said the attack was a message to oil companies in the region that more destruction was on the way.

The facility belongs to the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) and Shoreline Energy International.

It was blown up at about 11pm on Friday.

In the meantime, troops of the Nigerian Navy are combing the creeks of the Niger Delta region to arrest bombers of a pipeline belonging to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) in Delta State.

NDGJM advised the law enforcement agencies to shun the temptation of arresting the innocent for the group’s action.

It said:”In further execution of the OPERATION HAMMURABI CODE, the Akuma Strike Team, at about 2300hour of Friday, October 14, 2016, bombed the Oviri-Ogor Delivery line to the QCC in Ughelli. This is a message to, not just SHORELINE and NPDC, the cooperators of this facility, but to all of you who own facilities in the upland area of our land and are still believing in the arms of flesh.

“This shall be the state of affairs until all of you adjust to taking our land and the lives of our people seriously. The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate is not kidding with anybody and anybody should not think this is just one of those coming around to beg for a morsel of bread. Start a real and genuine engagement of real grassroots leaders from the region, not the divide-and-rule pattern, and this campaign shall cease.

“We, however, want to serve a warning to the Nigerian armed forces, don’t want to use this to start going after innocent community people. If you come in contact with us, it will not be a case of arrest, but a test of arms strength; such an encounter will undoubtedly result to a fight, so be warned.”
