Date and Time: 29th June 2017
Description: The militant group New Delta Avengers have issued a threat to resume attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta if all oil and gas activities are not suspended by midnight on June 30th
2017, in an operation called “Operation Cripple Oil and Gas Production”. They described the potential attacks as “bloody, destructive and vengeful”.
