Niger Delta: Militants blow up oil facility

Niger Delta Avengers may agree ceasefire says community leader

The leader of the militant group, Gen. Aldo Agbalaja, also confirmed the incident.

The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM) has blown up a crude oil facility run by the Nigeria Petroleum Development Company (NPDC).

The facility which is located around Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, was bombed on Tuesday, September 13, 2016, according to reports.

According to Vanguard, the leader of the militant group, Gen. Aldo Agbalaja, also confirmed the incident.

Speaking further, the militants said “The Niger Delta is not a conquered territory and our people have never succumbed to intimidation before, rather we match force with the oppressor’s brutality. The Nigerian government should already know that the people of this part are not fools, who will not be able to see when they are being treated with disdain.”

On Tuesday, August 30, 2016, another NPDC offshore facility was bombed by the same group of militants.

President Muhammadu Buhari has also assured Nigerians that his government is working to bring the Niger Delta militancy to an end.
