One of the militant groups operating in the oil-rich region of southern Nigeria, the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM), a militant group, says it has blown up a pipeline belonging to the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, NDPC, in Delta State.
The group confirmed this in a statement saying the attack occurred in the early hours of Tuesday, September 13, 2016. The Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, NDPC, is owned by the state-owned oil company in Nigeria, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.
“As a mark of our faith to totally grounding the Nigerian oil economy, the gallant “Opudo” strike forces brought down the Afiesere-Iwhrenene major delivery line in Ughelli North, leading to the UPS/UQCC operated by NPDC/SHORELINES at about 1am today,” the militants claim.
“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.”
The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate warned people around oil facilities in the region to vacate their residence “if you love your lives”.
The police have not reacted to the latest attack.
The militant group has refused to accept the ceasefire declared by the leading group in the region, the Niger Delta Avengers.
