Dare-devil Niger Delta Militants Bomb Agip Pipeline in Imo

SHARE:

A daring Niger-Delta militant group named the Niger Delta Red Squad (RDRS) has successfully added to the headaches of Governor Rochas Ewele Okorocha by destroying an Agip oil facility in Imo, South-eastern part of Nigeria, Daily Sun reports.
The explosion took place at Umuonei in Awara community and was announced on Facebook with a stern warning to the Agip workers to steer clear or face a death penalty by heading.
This is the second lethal attack by the group after it struck three months ago. The group which is yet to be attended to by the government operates in the oil bearing communities of Ohaji/Egbema council area of the state.
The group in the Facebook post by one General Don Wannie, claimed it struck because it has nothing to show for the operations of Agip, and other oil companies in their community since the creation of Imo State. “We have seen enough marginalisation and it has to be stopped,” he said.


The militant group said it was forced to resume hostility as a result of the continued criminal neglect of the oil-bearing communities by oil companies.


“We are not happy with Agip because they have continued to neglect our communities. Since they have refused to change, we have equally resumed the attack on their pipelines and we are going to blow until they do the right thing."
The group, which vowed to chase out the oil company from Ohaji/Egbema council area said if the state government failed to compel the oil company to do the right thing, it would have no option but to also attack the offices of the Imo State Oil Producing Area Development Commission (ISOPADEC), the Niger Delta Development Community (NDDC) among others in the state.


It also threatened to attack Governor Rochas Okorocha’s Ogboko village if government deployed any military to their community.
