A report has revealed that the Niger Delta Avengers in the early hours of Wednesday broke through the heavy military presence in the Niger Delta region, blowing up two vital Chevron oil wells in Warri North Local Government Area of Delta State.
It was learnt that the incident occurred around 3:44am near Egbema, an Ijaw enclave in Warri North.
The affected pipelines were identified as Chevron Bibi Oil Well RMP 23 and RMP.
It was gathered that Chevron noticed the incident at about 4am following a drop in pressure during production. The wells have since been shut down.
NDA confirmed attacking the oil wells in its twitter handle.
This development indicates that NDA has rebuffed the plea of leader of the defunct Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo, who urged them to seize the vandalism.
