Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) have said that they are not interested in negotiating with any committee set up by the Federal government.

They made this known in a tweet, after announcing that they they had blown up an oil well belonging to Chevron in the early hours of Wednesday.

This is coming barely 24 hours after the Nigerian Navy said it had apprehended the coordinator of series of attacks on the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Chevron oil and gas facilities in Delta.

The Commander, NNS Delta, Commodore Raimi Mohammed, disclosed this to newsmen at the Warri Naval Base, adding that the suspect was apprehended on June 2nd.

“I am pleased to announce that after several weeks of persistent effort the Nigerian Navy, in collaboration with other security agencies, have arrested the main coordinator of attacks on NNPC and Chevron oil and gas facilities.

The attacks were the bombing we witnessed since May 4th with the attack on Chevron Okan valve platform offshore in Escravos in Warri South-West.

We have recovered some Impoverished Explosive Devices (IED) for blowing up and vandalising pipelines.

We have decided not to give out the name of the suspect because he is helping us with useful information that could lead to the arrest of others.

The suspect has stolen crude oil from about 35 abandoned oil well heads and crude oil pipelines in Okpoko and Obodo in Warri South-West Local Government Area,” Mohammed said on Tuesday.

Mohammed also said that the navy had apprehended another suspect identified as Michael John, who allegedly murdered three soldiers in Jones creek and one soldier and a policeman in Batan community.

“The suspect has confessed to the crime,” he said.

The commander also said that another suspect was being quizzed for alleged involvement in the June 3rd attack on the 48 inches crude oil pipeline in Forcados oil terminal.
