Niger Delta militants blow up Shell oil export pipeline

Nigerian militants say they have again blown up an oil pipeline carrying crude for export from Shell’s Forcados terminal in the country’s south.

It’s the third attack in eight days on the Trans Forcados pipeline network.

The first came just hours after President Muhammadu Buhari held inconclusive talks with stakeholders aimed at halting the sabotage.

Militants and community leaders want development and a bigger share of revenues from oil that has massively polluted the southern Niger Delta.

The Niger Delta Avengers said the Tuesday night’s bombing is to reinforce warnings for oil companies to desist from repairing attacked installations.

Nearby residents confirmed hearing a large explosion.

Oil companies don’t comment on the attacks.

In July, militants blew up the pipeline from the 400 000 barrel-a-day Forcados export terminal of Dutch-British multinational Shell.

  5. Let them continue to destroy their environment, after they will blame other people for their woes. A child that said his parents will not sleep will also keep awake to achieve that!
