A crude oil pipeline in the Niger Delta region was set on fire on Friday night. A militant group said it attacked the pipeline, which is run by the NNPC and a local private firm, Shoreline, near Ughelli, Delta State.

“The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate is not kidding with anybody,” the militants said in a statement.

“This shall be the state of affairs until all of you adjust to taking our land and the lives of our people seriously,” it said, referring to this and a similar attack in the same area on Thursday night.

There was no immediate information on the impact of the latest incidents on Nigeria’s oil production. Attacks have reduced output by 700,000 barrels per day since the start of the year.


Militants say they want a greater share of Nigeria’s oil wealth to go to the impoverished Delta region. Crude sales make up about 70 percent of national income and the vast majority of that oil comes from the southern swampland.
