The Nigerian Army says its troops on Sunday averted attacks on oil pipelines located at Gulobokri and Eweleso communities in Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa.
The acting Director of Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman confirmed this in a statement issued in Abuja.
Usman said the attack was averted by the troops on patrol of areas around Brass in Bayelsa.
According to Usman, the patrol team has an encounter with some armed militants in two speed boats with intent to blow up Nigerian Agip Oil Company pipeline at Gulobokri.
“In the early hours of today, May 29, troops of 343 Artillery Regiment of 2 Brigade, 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, carried out patrol within the general area of Gulobokri and Eweleso.
‘’This was around Brass area in Bayelsa State.
“During the exercise, the troops encountered some armed militants who opened fire on the patrol team.
“The troops responded with overwhelming superior firepower and as a result, the suspected criminals sped off from the area with many of them sustaining gunshot wounds.
“Unfortunately, a personnel of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) attached to the team sustained gunshot wound and has since been evacuated and he is in a stable condition,’’ Usman said.
Usman also said that another patrol team of the same unit of 82 Division, Nigerian Army, averted another attack on an oil facility at Perigbene House Boat in Bayelsa.
He said the troops on patrol to the area encountered militants in three speed boats also on a mission to attack another critical infrastructure in the area.
Usman said the troops killed most of the militants while others escaped with gunshot injuries.
He said the casualty figure on militants could not be ascertained as it was raining heavily adding that the raging storm could not allow troops to go on in pursuit of the escaping criminals.
Usman added that a mop-up operation had been organised for those militants that escaped with gunshot wounds adding that they might be receiving treatment in the neighbouring communities.
He said troops would continue to intensify patrols in the general area to further halt planned attacks on key public infrastructure in the area.
Keep on with d good work, may God protect our gallant soldiers.

It’s a lie. There are only arresting innocent people and saying this to impress the Government. Watch out for avengers.
Dey love d avengers work
Really, but why are they fighting them?
look at what some useless Yoruba and Hausa / Fulani are saying your army can’t do nothing who are they protecting your army but to kill innocent people is only what they know
mr man mind your tongue you are the useless IGBO
Folakemi omotayo Yusuf Tafida and Rasaki Bakare all of you are useless people I’m talking fools ang idiotic almagiris.
You people have not seen anything ontill d dey of sensoil where people will be count u will nw no dan baifra has reduce
idiot igbo …monkey families
D nigerian army will use their tactics, their inteligent and their proffesionalism to attack these idiots that took us for granted d way they did to Odi and bokoharam, let no one be spared
sometimes I feel shameful seeing Hausa/fulani and some foolish yoruba comments. those it mean they knew it already that the are curse and that the little light they are using is Biafran light, they are so stupid and hopeless to the extend of praying to God not to let Biafrans go which is they only Hope in life. its a shame they can’t survive without Great Biafrans
Please, answer me,” Are these soldiers NOT humans trained for battle and are these Avergers NOT humans trained for battle?” Both have blood and were born by women, so don’t say Nigerian soldiers wil do this and that. I have said it again and again that Niger Delta is a very difficult place for strange soldiers to battle the Avergers who are natives of the areas and swiwing is NOT their problem. Time will tell. Let Buhari who failed to name looters on 29th May, 2016 as he promised cos he himself has looted the recovered funds he wil go with in eventual fall of Nigerian State.
Ola Badlock is your name and Babajide victor nonsense Prince omoloye Adagboyega useless Mathew when I saw your names I knew this is those Hausa almagiri born thunder will kill of you one by one stupid people
Guess what? The ten suspected men they arrested are criminal from Edo State. The army can’t dare avengers.

Another cock and bull story.
Know that reports of war are only brought by one who has seen its battle . As for the fighter , he is occupied with the acts of war , distracted from the reports of war ! Information is knowledge and deeds are action . There is no doubt that we are in the best of time and the one who is ignorant of this day of blessings is a donkey without a doubt ! The hand of the terrestrial is always over the celestial in any state . He said may He exalted : ” Yet We desired to be kind to those that were abased in the earth and to make them leaders . . ” Ina cike da masu gaba da baba buhari kuma bana musu fatan alheri . Ni a ganina suna kama da yan boko haram !
