Nigerian militants warn of "zero" oil output in new attacks

LONDON/ONITSHA- The Niger Delta Avengers militant group has claimed three new attacks on Nigeria’s battered oil infrastructure, promising to drag production down to “zero”. The attacks are the latest in a Delta region situation that a major local youth group said is “rapidly deteriorating and getting out of control”, putting intense pressure on Nigeria’s stretched finances. Early on Friday, the group said via its Twitter account it had blown up a pipeline in Nigeria’s Bayelsa state owned by Italy’s ENI, hours after attacks on another ENI pipeline as well as one belonging to Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd (SPDC).
