Moves by the federal government to negotiate with the militants group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) to reach a truce and stop attacks on oil installations in the Niger region have met a brick wall.
The NDA militants on Wednesday said they are not currently negotiating with any committee set up by the Nigerian Government.
According to information available on its Twitter handle, the group warned that federal government is on its own if there is discussion ongoing with any group.
The NDA tweets: @NDAvengers “This is to the Gen. public we’re not negotiating with any Committee. if Fed Govt is discussing wth any group they’re doing that on their own.”
Meanwhile, the Avengers claimed they have also blown up another oil well belonging to Chevron.
They tweeted that the attack was carried out 01.00 hours on Wednesday, affecting Well RMP 20 belonging to Chevron located away from Dibi flow station in Warri North Local government Aarea of delta state.
The group has been sustaining deadly attacks on the nation’s oil installations across the Niger Delta states, raising fears of possible zero oil production that the Avengers are targeting.
