HEAVY PANICK AS ANOTHER TWO PIPELINES BLOWS UP IN BAYELSA

HEAVY PANICK AS ANOTHER TWO PIPELINES BLOWS UP IN BAYELSA

There has been a heavy tension in Ogbembiri community which is located in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa State for the past few days following series of attacks on oil and gas pipeline facilities located in the region by suspected militant-activists whose resurgence in recent times has crippled oil production output in Nigeria.

A major gas pipeline owned by Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) located in  the Southern Ijaw community was reportedly attacked on Tuesday evening by the dreaded activists. Agip alongside Chevron Oil Company have been the most severely affected owing the activities of the new generation Niger Delta activists.

The recently attacked gas pipeline facility is said to be one of the major pipeline distribution channels across Nigeria. The pipeline cut across communities such as Tumor in Bomadi, Delta State through  Ogbuasiri located in Ekeremor and also the frequently attacked Ogbembiri in Southern Ijaw part of Bayelsa State.

Reports coming from the indigenes of Ogbembiri has it that a group of heavily armed men had stormed the community about 48hours ago while the security agents where nowhere to be seen.

Also, an oil pipeline located in Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State was also reportedly attacked prior to the attack at Ogbembiri which has resulted to an oil spillage around the viscinity.

Although no group has claimed responsibility for these recent attacks, suspicions have it that the dreaded Niger Delta Avengers must have carried out the attacks having claimed responsibility for similar attacks carried out earlier. The Avengers had last week given a two week ultimatum to the Nigerian government to meet their demands which include among many others the alleviation of sufferings and marginalisations being experienced by the people of the region and immediate release of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra and Director of Radio Biafra/Biafra Television, who is still under incarceration at the hand of Nigerian government despite previous court rulings ordering for his unconditional release.
