Niger Delta Militants Bomb Another Oil Pipeline In Delta

The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, which had threatened to bomb more oil facilities, has made good its threat by blowing up the Unenurhie-Evwreni Delivery Line in Ughelli South and North local government areas of Delta State.

According to a statement signed by the group's spokesman, General Aldo Agbalaja, and obtained by SaharaReporters, the bombing was carried out at about 1pm on  Wednesday.

"As a mark of our commitment to a just cause and to prove to the wicked and ungrateful multinational oil companies and their Nigerian military allies, who have been forcefully taking our natural endowment without any visible returns, that we own our lands, the Opudo Strike Team of the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, at about 0100hour on 29th September 2016, bombed the Unenurhie-Evwreni delivery line in Ughelli South/North respectively operated by NPDC.

"We want to assure the oil multinational companies that we are determined to end their operations in our lands and this,  we shall if they fail to show the will to change their relationship with our people and their operational attitude in our lands," said the statement.

The group also boasted that no amount of military protection or presence can stop its bid to chase out the oil companies out of the Niger Delta region. The statement added that Operation Crocodile Tears,  which it ran, sank the Nigerian military's Operation Crocodile Smile.

"Like we have said, this will only stop when you turn a new leaf, adopt a sincere attitude, give back to our people what naturally should be theirs, advise the government rightly, stop thinking there's an army to protect you from justice. If you do these, be assured to have a good relationship with our people and real protection for your personnel and assets across our lands." the group told oil companies.
