Suspected militants, on Monday morning, carried
out a twin attack on oil facilities as they bombed
two oil installations belonging to an oil
exploration company, near Batan community in
Delta State.

Details of the incident were sketchy at the time
report, but locals said the explosions occurred at
about 12.05 am on Monday.
Chairman of Batan community, Dickson Ogugu,
who confirmed the attack, said: “We heard a
double explosion at about 12:05am between
Camp 3 and Kokologbene communities.”

A security officer attached to 3 Battalion, Effurun,
near Warri, who also spoke to Vanguard, said a
team of military personnel has been drafted in
company of a surveillance team to ascertain the
extent of damage.
This double strike is coming after the Niger Delta
Avengers (NDA) debunked the claim by the
Minister of Youths and Sports, Mr Solomon
Dalung, that he met with the militant group at
Oporoza, saying he was apparently defrauded by
Niger Delta fraudsters.
Meanwhile, another militant group in the region,
the Niger Delta Suicides (NDS) has warned that it
would devastate the economy in different forms if
government refused to create a genuine platform
for talks with militants.
