The Niger Delta Avengers have said they have attacked two of Chevron Nigeria Limited’s oil wells – RMP 24 and RMP 23 around 3.44am on Wednesday, June 1, 2016.
The militants announced their exploit in a series of tweets on Wednesday, mocking the Nigerian military.
The militants said that the Nigerian Army lied about its operations against the group.
“With the heavy presence of 100 Gunboats, 4 Warships and Jet Bombers, Niger Delta Avengers blew up Chevron Oil Well RMP 23 and RMP 24 at 3:44am this morning,” the group tweeted.
“This is to show the whole world that Nigerian military is good in harassing innocent civilians. RMP 24 and RMP 23 are Chevron Swamp Highest producing Wells. #Boom.”
