The Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, NDGJM, in the wee hours of Thursday blew up another crude oil delivery line in Delta State operated by the Nigeria Petroleum Development Company, NPDC, insisting that it is fighting a just cause.
This was made known in a statement issued by the NDGJM spokesman, self styled Gen Aldo Agbalaja, who stated that the group is poised to put an end the operations of oil multinationals in the Niger Delta.
“As a mark of our commitment to a just course and to prove to the wicked and ungrateful multinational oil companies and their Nigerian military allies, who have been forcefully taking our natural endowment, without any visible returns, that we own our lands, the Opudo Strike Team of the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate, at about 01. 00 hour today, 29th Sept 2016, bombed the Unenurhie-Evwreni delivery line in Ughelli south/north respectively operated by NPDC.
“We want to assure the oil multinational companies that we are determined to end their operations in our lands and this we shall if they fail to show the will to change their relationship with our people and their operational attitude in our lands.
“For the avoidance of doubts, we want to say here, categorically, that no amount of military protection/presence can stop this whirlpool, no amount of shoddily arranged military operation can quell the will of our gallant army.
“The same way their Operation Crocodile Smile was sunken by our Operation Crocodile Tears is how all their schemes against our land and people will continue to be defeated,” the NDGJM stated.
The group went on to reiterate that the attacks “will only stop when you turn a new leaf, adopt a sincere attitude, give back to our people what naturally should be theirs, advise the government rightly, stop thinking there’s an army to protect you from justice, do these and all that you know are good. If you do these, be assured to have a good relationship with our people and real protection for your personnel and assets across our lands.”
