Niger Delta Militants Bomb Another Crude Oil Pipeline in Delta, Says More Attacks Coming
The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, NDGJM, has blown up a pipeline in Delta State, South-South Nigeria.
The crude oil delivery line which supplies product to the Ughelli Quality Control Center was attacked at about 11pm on Thursday.
In a statement by its spokesperson, self-styled, Gen Aldo Agbalaja, the group disclosed that the attack was carried out by its strike team.
According to Agbalaja, “At about 2100hours of Thursday, October 13, 2016, the Akuma Strike Team of the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate brought down the Iwhremaro to the Ughelli Quality Control Centre (QCC) delivery line to signal the commencement of the Operation Hammurabi Code.”
NDJGM also announced the launching of its “Operation Hammurabi Code” in mockery of the Army’s recent drill codenamed, “Operation Crocodile Smile.”
The group while accusing the government of divide and rule said, “We have been patient and reasonable all along; hence our choice to restrict our activities to mild operations that were not aimed at causing critical damages, but it has now become crystal clear that we are dealing with devious and incorrigible people.
“Therefore, we serve this as a notice to the Nigerian government and its conniving multinationals that the Operation Hammurabi Code has been initiated, henceforth, it shall be an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Now you shall know what uprooting of your cherished assets means. It starts from now on, there is no longer going to be warnings or special consideration for anybody.
“We have observed that the leopard of the oil company is incapable of changing its skin; ever deceiving, ever conniving. Your ‘divide-and-rule’ gimmick will fail here as we will not stay idle in the face of your lies.
“For every lie you introduce, you will lose a major asset and if need be, you will lose personnel. We have said it once and we shall repeat it here now; the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate will not call this campaign off in secret, when we see reason to do so and we decide to do so, we shall reach the world publicly through this same channel, from where we took off.”
Similarly, the group had in September blown up a crude oil pipeline in Ughelli area of the state.
