Militants Blow Up Agip Facility In Bayelsa


Armed men believed to be members of the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) have blown up a section of the Tebidaba-Brass pipelines along the Azuzuama- Ikienghenbiri creek in the swamp of Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.

The facility is owned by oil giant, Nigerian Agip Oil Company NAOC.

The NDA had made a 10-point demand from the federal government, including the unconditional release of the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPoB) Mr Nnamdi Kanu and the immediate implementation of the report of the 2014 National Conference.

It also said President Muhammadu Buhari, the DSS and former Bayelsa governor, Timipre Sylva, should apologise to the people of the Niger Delta and family of the late Chief DSP Alamieyesegha over his death.

The spokesperson of the Avengers, Mudoch Agbinibo, said the group would not stop its bombing operations until its demands are met.

No one has claimed responsibility for the Bayelsa attack.
