A new militant group calling themselves the Niger Delta Avengers hit a Chevron facility on Monday and gave a two-week ultimatum for oil firms operating in the region to shut down operations. The Avengers happened to plan and execute another attack causing an explosion on Friday that rocked Chevron Nigeria Limited’s facility.
The company has in the last few weeks recorded several attacks on its installations, for which the militants claimed responsibility. Friday’s attack occurred on the Marakaba line operated by the oil firm in Warri, Delta State. The Nation reports that explosive waste detonated on oil well head 10 on the Makaraba line.
