Niger Delta Avengers blow up NNPC pipeline in Akwa-Ibom

The Niger Delta Avengers on Monday claimed responsibility for the attack on a Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation gas pipeline  at Nsit-Ibom council area of Akwa Ibom State.

A statement sent to our correspondent by the spokesperson for the group, Mudoch Agbinibo, said the facility was blown up at about 11:30pm on Sunday night.

The Avengers claimed responsibility for similar attacks on oil and gas facilities since renewed militancy in the region begun.

It asked the NNPC authorities to check their facility whether they will claim if it was ‘system Anomaly’ as Exxon Mobil recently did before later affirming similar attack on their facilities in the state.

The statement read, “11:30pm on Sunday, the NDA blow up Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), gas pipeline at Nsit-Ibom L.G.A, Akwa Ibom state. NNPC should check their pipeline if it’s ‘system Anomaly’.”

However, Punch could not independently confirm the attack at the time of filing this report.

Details later…
