Niger Delta Avengers had threatened to carry out more attacks on oil installations belonging to the Nigeria Agip Oil Company, NAOC if the company embarks on any form of repairs on damaged pipelines in Bayelsa State.
The group also denied involvement in the attack of the Military houseboat around Warri, Delta State, which led to the death of six sleeping Soldiers, noting that is not their style to attack innocent persons.
In a statement signed by its spokesperson, Brig. Gen Mudoch Agbinibo on its Twitter handle, @NDAvengers , said: “We (Niger Delta Avengers) are sending this warning message to #Agip not to commence repair works on any of the blown pipelines in Bayelsa.
“We will make you regret it, if you even dare us.”
The group had earlier in a press statement on their website debunked the allegations that they carried the attack on military houseboat that claim the lives of six soldiers.
According to the statement, “Niger Delta Avenger were not involved in the attack of the Military houseboat around Warri, Delta State, killing of sleeping soldiers is not our style.
“We promise the world that in this Process of liberating our People, not a single blood of Nigeria soldiers will be wasted despite the provocation. Even the Inhumane Nigeria soldiers are exempted, our war is on Oil installations not to take innocent lives.
“For the fact we can’t give Life, we also don’t have the power to take any life. But we (Avengers) are assuring the families of the affected soldiers that we will bring the culprits to book.
“When it’s time to face the military in combat let the whole world know that we won’t be the ones to throw the first Punch.
They also warn some criminal group hiding under the cover of freedom fighters to commit crime to desist forthwith, or will be dealt with in no distant time.
“This message is going to all groups parading themselves as freedom fighters. You can fight for your people without killing innocent souls NDA have proved. We were able to drop Nigeria Oil production from 2 million Barrels to just 800,000 barrels without killing a soul. We are warning every group to follow our footsteps. The days of Killing and Kidnapping are over.”
