The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has blown up two pipelines belonging to Chevron.

Mudoch Agbinibo, spokesman of the group, disclosed this in a terse statement on Wednesday night.

“Between the hours of 10:50pm to 11:10pm our (Niger Delta Avengers) strike team blew up Chevron Manifolds. The manifolds are RMP 22, 23 and 24. Happy Eid Mubarak to our Muslim Brothers,” Agbinibo said in a post published on the group’s website.

After a two-week ceasefire, which resulted in an upsurge in oil production, the Avengers, between Friday, July 1 and Sunday, July 3, damaged five oil pipelines in Delta.

Since then, the militant group has claimed responsibility for the destruction of a total of nine pipelines in the Niger Delta region.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday implored the militants to give “Nigeria a chance” while noting that a united nation is non-negotiable.

“I assure them of the saying by Gen Gowon that to keep Nigeria is a task that must be done. In those days, we never thought of oil, all we were concerned of is one Nigeria. So, please pass this to the militants that one Nigeria is not negotiable and they had better accept. Nigerian constitution is clear as to what they should get and I assure them there will be justice,” he said.

Meanwhile, the group maintained President Buhari’s administration has been in negotiations with fraudsters and not representatives of the Avengers.

“We the Niger Delta Avengers have not negotiated with anyone… If (FG) they have been negotiating with anybody it clearly shows they had been negotiating with fraudsters and their created militant group,” the Avengers said.
