A new armed group has said it blew up a major Nigerian oil pipeline and threatened more attacks.
The previously unknown Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate’s statement came as protesters continued to block the entrance to a Chevron oil depot in the restive southern region for a third day.
The blown up pipeline belongs to state oil firm NNPC and local firm Shoreline Natural Resources in Delta state.
The group warned that the attack was only a taste of its activities to come and urged multinational companies “to evacuate their personnel”
The government last week resumed payments of allowances to former fighters under an amnesty scheme.
