The Niger Delta Avengers, have for the past few months, waged an economic war against the Nigerian state – by bombing and destroying oil pipelines of private and government owned oil companies.
The Federal Government recently ordered the Nigerian Army to withdraw troops from the Niger Delta region in order to effectively dialogue with the Avengers and other militant groups responsible for oil pipeline destruction.
