The Niger Delta Avengers on Monday claimed responsibility for the attack on a Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation gas pipeline at Nsit-Ibom council area of Akwa Ibom State.
A statement sent to our correspondent by the spokesperson for the group, Mudoch Agbinibo, said the facility was blown up at about 11:30pm on Sunday night.
The Avengers claimed responsibility for similar attacks on oil and gas facilities since renewed militancy in the region begun.
taunted the NNPC authorities asking them check their facility and decide whether to describe the incident as ‘system Anomaly’ as Exxon Mobil recently did after a similar attack on their facilities before later affirming that there had been an attack.
The statement read, “11:30pm on Sunday, the NDA blew up Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), gas pipeline at Nsit-Ibom L.G.A, Akwa Ibom state. NNPC should check their pipeline if it’s ‘system Anomaly’.”
The NNPC and security authorities have yet to confirm or deny the attack, however.
