BIG MESS: Niger Delta Militants Carry Out More Attacks by nairaway(m) : 11:00 am On May 27, 2016
These guys want to cripple operations. Chevron’s operations came under threat after yet another attack on its facility on Thursday at the Abiteye line in Warri South-West council area of Delta State.
Members of a militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), destroyed a major crude oil facility, grounding Chevron’s swamp operations in the state.
The Avengers, in a tweet, claimed responsibility for the attack, which is bound to alter oil production and, in effect, Nigeria’s revenue.
The oil facilities were bombed while Chevron was trying to repair the main Escravos crude line.
Reuters quoted sources as saying that the company’s onshore operations in the Niger Delta had been shut down following the attack, which involved the main electricity line leading to its Escravos terminal.
“It is a crude line, which means all activities in Chevron are grounded,” the source told Reuters.
The group is now issuing threats, warning that no one, either Chevron of Nigerian government should make any move to repair the facility until their demands are fully met. Just imagine!
Sources say President Buhari is very sad but still trying to take it easy because some people in the Niger Delta are waiting for the Nigerian Army to react, so they will accuse Buhari of killing their people.
