BREAKING: Militant group blows up pipeline, rejects N’Delta meeting with Buhari


The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate has attacked a crude oil delivery line at Effurun-Otor Ughelli South Council Area of Delta State.

The militant group destroyed the pipeline to announce its rejection of Tuesday’s meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and some leaders of the region.

In a statement by its spokesman, Aldo Agbalaja, the group claimed responsibility for the attack on the pipeline owned by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company.

The attack on the 32-inch pipeline was carried out at about 11:30pm.

It threatened to attack more pipelines in the area if the Federal Government holds a meeting with the Edwin Clark-led Niger Delta delegation.

“We are reiterating our unflinching belief that the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, being coordinated by E.K Clark, is a job and therefore can never get our support. Like we said before now, the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate is not opposed to a genuine dialogue between the Federal Government and the real representatives of the various ethnic groups of our region.”

The separatist group said it would bring up a list of people who are genuine to the cause of the Niger Delta and can represent the region at the meeting.
