Nigerian militants critical of the role multinational energy companies are playing in the oil rich Nigerian delta have bombed a Chevron-operated export pipeline at Escravos in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State.

The so-called Niger Delta Avengers have warned Chevon as well as other international oil companies to heed to its warnings not to effect repairs to their bombed facilities pending the outcome of ongoing negotiations or dialogue with the people of the Niger Delta.

The Avengers have said they want to force multinationals out of the oil-producing Niger Delta because careless production has impoverished residents through massive pollution that has destroyed fishing grounds and agricultural fields.

Deji Haastrup, the General Manager, Government, Public and Policy of Chevron, refused to confirm or deny the attack when contacted yesterday.
