The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM) has vowed to blow up more oil installations, if government does not meet its demand for inclusion in negotiations with other militant groups.
Spokesman of the group, one General Aldo Agbalaja, said the destruction of a delivery trunk line from Isoko to the Eriemu Manifold, belonging to the NPDC/Shoreline Resources, was a tip of the iceberg in its “operation zero” exercise.
Agalaja said: “This is just a glimpse of what is to come. There are several assets already penned down for destruction. This line of action has been made inevitable by an unjust system, which only responds to the violent, to the detriment of the peaceful and law-abiding.”
He said the pipelines were empty when they were hit because militants had earlier blown up the main feeder line from Forcados.The militants warned the operators of the NPDC not to commence repairs, as “the inevitable may occur to their personnel.”
