BREAKING: Avengers attack Escravos pipeline

Niger Delta militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers say they have attacked an oil pipeline in Escravos in the Niger Delta.

Murdoch Agbinigbo, spokesman for the group said in a statement on Tuesday that the attack took place early Tuesday morning. Giving reason for the attack, Agbinigbo said:

“This action is to further warn all IOCs’ that when we warn that there should be no repairs pending negotiation/dialogue with the people of the Niger Delta, it means there should be no repairs. An attempt to use dialogue to distract us so as to allow the free flow of our oil will halt the dialogue process”.
