Why Niger Delta Militants Want To Resume Bombing Pipelines Again
The bad boys of Niger Delta are threatening to start destroying oil facilities.
The boys, under a Coalition of Niger Delta Agitators on Wednesday, September 5th announced that they were returning to the creeks.
But what is their grouse this time?
Well, there are several, but chief on the list is the refusal of international oil companies to relocate their headquarters to the Niger Delta region.
Following that is the unwarranted invasion of the house of elder statesman, Chief Edwin Clark.
In fact, the group believes the invasion of Clark’s house was to assassinate him for championing the course of the Niger Delta people.
A statement signed by leaders of the militant groups that make up the coalition warned IOCs that failed to relocate their headquarters to the Niger Delta before December 2018 to stop operation or be ready to face the consequences.
The coalition said it had played its part by holding onto its pledge to end hostilities, adding that with the resumption of hostilities, the agitators would force national oil production to 200 barrels per day within one month.
The militants described the refusal by President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Petroleum Industry Governance Bill into law as an attempt to forcefully control the Niger Delta resources by proxy.
