….Ibom Patriots warn Avengers to limits its bombings to Delta Niger Delta Avengers on Sunday night allegedly blew up the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, gas pipeline at Nsite Ibom Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom State. But a pressure group, Ibom Patriots, has advised the rampaging militants to limit their nefarious activities to Delta State, where they have destroyed many pipelines in a desperate bid to cripple the economy. The group aligned itself with the statement credited to the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo that the Avengers were fighting for their own pockets, asking why this current spate of bombings as soon as the federal government declared Tompolo wanted over alleged corrupt enrichment. Coordinator of the group, Udeme Bassey warned that no ethnic group has the monopoly to embark on violent activities as the Avengers were currently doing and reiterated call that they should not venture into Akwa Ibom land. According to the group, it would take several years to clean the spills caused by such dastard acts, saying that Akwa Ibom state has been a peaceful and that the environment was the only heritage of the people, and destroying it as the militant group was doing tantamount to self-inflicted pains. The spokesperson of the militant group, self-styled Brigadier General Mudoch Agbinibo, in a statement, challenged NNPC to “check their pipeline if it is 'system anomaly.' ” The statement read: “At 11:30pm on Sunday, the NDA blow up Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), gas pipeline at Nsit-Ibom L.G.A, Akwa Ibom state. NNPC should check their pipeline if it's “system Anomaly. ''Asking the NNPC to check if it was system anomaly is an allusion to the exchange between the militant group and Exxon Mobil, which initially denied an attack on its export line in Akwa-Ibom state, saying that it was a system anomaly, only to declare force majeure days later.''
