Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate blew up the Afiesere-Iwhrenene oil pipeline in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
The leader of the group, Gen. Aldo Agbalaja confirmed the attack, Vanguard reports.
A statement by the group reads in part:
“The high command of the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, once again says to the deceptive and untrustworthy Nigerian government and its cowardly armed forces that our people shall not deal with you on your terms, but on mutually agreed terms. Until you drop this deceptive and master/servant poise, Operation Crocodile Tears shall persist.”
The group’s Operation Crocodile Tears is a direct reaction to that adopted by the Nigerian army patrolling the region- Operation Crocodile Smile.
The group advised residents close to major oil facilities to move from such areas. As they are set to increase their attacks on other oil and gas infrastructures.
