We will attack your workers if you attempt to fix Qua Iboe pipeline – Niger Delta Avengers threatens ExxonMobil
Recall that the group had on Monday claimed responsibility for the attack on Exxon Mobil Que Iboe 48-inch Crude Oil Export Pipeline in Akwa Ibom.
Reacting to Spitler’s comment on the attack, the separatist group in a statement by its spokesman, Mudock Agbinibo warned the oil company to consider the consequences of fixing the blown up pipeline.
According to the group, should Exxon Mobil fail to heed its warning by going, “ahead to carry out repairs on the pipeline something big will happen.”
The group said, “We are warning ExxonMobil not to carry out any repair work on the blown pipeline, if they refuse and go ahead with any repair work, something big and worse will happen.
“What happened to Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) crude oil export pipeline in Forcados is an example to all International Oil Companies, IOCs, no repair works until the federal government heed to our demands.
“If ExxonMobil fails to listen to us (Niger Delta Avengers), your personnel are going to be our next casualties, not pipelines.”
