SINGAPORE – The Niger Delta Avengers militant group said on Thursday through social media that it had blown up a third crude pipeline in Nigeria’s Bayelsa state in the Delta area.
“At about 3:30am our (@NDAvengers) strike team blew up the Brass to Tebidaba Crude oil line in Bayelsa,” the group said on a Twitter feed it uses to claim attacks.
The pipeline is used to transport Brass River crude to an export terminal.
The attack came hours after the group said they blew up the Ogboinbiri-Tebidaba and Clough Creek-Tebidaba pipelines in Bayelsa.(Reuters)
