The Niger Delta Avengers have struck again, this time destroying a pipeline belonging to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
The NNPC pipeline which the group blew up is located in the Oruk Anam Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State and the attack occurred around 4am on Friday morning. The group claimed responsibility for the attack via its Twitter page
