The Niger Delta Avengers are living up to their promise of attacking and destroying oil and gas facilities in the Niger-Delta. The militants, who last night vandalized Chevron oil platform near Warri have also promised to shift their activities to Lagos and Abuja.
The militant group at about 10:40pm on Wednesday destroyed the Chevron valve platform said to be the most significant platform for chevron because it’s the main connecting point where all other platforms linked up and it’s a fulcrum to chevron BOP and the Chevron Tank farm.. With the valve platform blown all chevron activities are now said to be halted.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the Spokesperson of the Group, Col. Madoch Agbinibo said, “This is what we promised the Nigeria Government that since they refuse to listen to us we are going to zero the economy of the country”.
“As for zeroing the Nigeria economy we the Niger delta avengers is done with delta state major oil installations. Now we are taking the fight out of the creeks of the Niger Delta. We are taking it to Abuja and Lagos now”.
Continuing, the statement said, “We want to pass this message to all the international oil companies operating in the Niger Delta that the Nigeria Military can’t protect your facilities. They should talk to the federal government to meet our demands else more mishaps will befall their installations”.
“And to the Military we are the masters of the creek and its time for you to admit you don’t understand the terrain. Making it impossible for the Nigeria military to stop the activities of the Niger Delta avengers”.
“Not until, our demands are met no repair works should be done at the blast site. Whoever that is going there for any repair work will be doing that at their detriment”.
“The high command of the Niger Delta Avengers wants to use this medium to thank strike team 6 for successfully blowing up of the chevron valve platform. And we are ready to protect the Niger Delta people”.
