The Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), the militant group which has claimed responsibilities for recent attacks on oil installations, has asked all oil companies operating in the region to suspend operations within two weeks.
The group, which said failure to comply with the directive will be bloody, said the military lacked the power to prevent it from striking.
“The Niger Delta Avengers is giving two weeks ultimatum to all oil companies in our region to shut down and evacuates their staff,” the group said in a statement signed by Mudoch Agbinibo, its spokesman.
“If at the end of the ultimatum and you still operating. We will blow up all the locations. It will be bloody. So just shut down your operations and leave.”
