The rampaging Niger Delta Avengers militant group on Monday continued with its sabotage activities aimed at crippling the economy of Nigeria by attacking ExxonMobile Qua Iboe 48″ crude oil export pipeline.
According to a statement signed by the spokesperson of the Group, Brig.Gen Mudoch Agbinibo, “At about 7:30pm the Niger Delta Avengers blow up ExxonMobile Qua Iboe 48″ crude oil export pipeline. When will these International Oil companies (IOC) learn to listen. We (Niger Delta Avengers) said no export”.
It would be recalled that in earlier statements the Group gave reasons for embarking on its destructive activities.
“When a man id denied the right to live the life he believes in; he has no choice but to become an outlaw” Nelson Mandela.
“The same can be said of the case between the people of the Niger Delta and successive government of Nigeria. it is our sincere believe that we can practice true federalism where our resources will be controlled by us and used for our own good but the reverse is the case in the Nigeria of today. where the goose that lays the golden egg is killed along with the egg.
The very same factor that brought about the Niger Delta arm struggle is fast resurfacing as the Buhari led administration is poised to exterminate the Niger Delta people for being benevolent enough to allow the nations mono-economy thrive on our oil.
We are being oppressed and pushed to the wall on various front hence we (the Niger Delta Avengers) have picked up the challenge to be the worthy outlaws this government will have to contend until the daily production of oil is reduced to zero in the Niger Delta and let use the oil of the North to run the Nigeria”s mono-economy.”, the NDA said in one of its statements
