Militants Blow Up Agip Pipeline with Dynamite


Militants in the Niger Delta region continued their assault on pipelines as they attacked an Agip pipeline with dynamite in the southern part of Bayelsa State on Sunday.

This was just after a similar attack was unleashed on an Escravos pipeline in Warri, Delta State on Friday.

The Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps spokesman Desmond Agu, said that the Agip pipeline was attacked with dynamite in the early hours of Sunday.

Eni, which operates in Nigeria through its subsidiary Nigerian Agip Oil Company, could not be immediately reached to comment on the attack.
