YENAGOA, Nigeria, July 8 (Reuters) – Attackers blew up an oil pipeline in Nigeria’s southern Bayelsa state operated by a subsidiary of Italy’s Eni on Friday, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSDC) said.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the blast, the latest in a spate of attacks on oil and gas facilities in the OPEC member’s Niger Delta region over the last few months which have pushed oil production to 30-year lows.

The attack took place at Lasukugbene, said spokesman Desmond Agwu. “There was a blast (on the) pipeline and my men were exchanging fire with some of the hoodlums,” he said.
