Urhobo militant group, Niger Delta Greenland Justice Movement yesterday blew up the Ogor-Oteri major delivery line, operated by the Nigeria Petroleum Development Company and Shorelines Petroleum in the state.
The group in a statement by its leader, “General” Aldo Agbalaja, in a statement, claimed responsibility for the attack.
It said it carried out the attack called “Operation Crocodile Tears” in response to the military’s “operation crocodile smile”.
The Niger Delta Avengers had since stopped bombings, waiting to dialogue with the Federal Government.
The activities of militant groups in the Niger Delta have crippled the country's economy, forcing crude oil production below 1.2 million per barrel daily.
