The Niger Delta Avengers have released another fresh attack in Delta state.

According to reports, The Niger Delta Militants carried out a fresh attack which involved  Chevron and the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, NPDC. being blown up.

The attack was said to be carried out between Saturday night and this morning and both attack was said to have happened in Delta State.



It is not clear the reason for the new attacks after two weeks of what appeared cessation of hostilities by the militants. There have, however, been reports of breakdown of negotiation between the group and the Nigerian government.
The latest attacks, if confirmed, also underscore the capabilities of the group whose activities had cut deeply into Nigeria’s oil exports, affecting the operations of oil companies in the Niger Delta.
In June, Shell Nigeria announced that it would keep its Forcados Export Terminal shut until security of its staff stationed around there could be guaranteed.
In an attempt to pacify the militants, the Nigerian government in June ordered troops to cease further assault.
