July 25 (FxMallam) – The Nigerian militant group Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) has claimed responsibility for a pipeline explosion on Sunday at Nsit-Ibom L.G.A in Akwa Ibom state. 

The group released a statement on their website saying,

“11:30pm on Sunday, the NDA blow 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 Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is yet to release a statement confirming or denying the pipeline attack. Last week, a former milliant group, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), acknowledged ongoing talks with the Federal Government on ending millitant attacks on oil and gas installations.

However, it was said that the Niger Delta Avengers were not party to these talk.
