Militant group 'attack' Niger Delta's oil works

Source: PressTV§ionid=351020505

The Nigerian militant group, Joint Revolutionary Council (JRC), has claimed attacks on oil and gas facilities in the southern Niger Delta region.

The JRC militants said Friday that they have blown up two key pieces of oil infrastructure and a gas pipeline in the oil-rich areas of the south where the multinational energy company Shell runs oil and natural gas works.

The group had earlier claimed another attack on a trunk line belonging to Shell in the Obunoma area of the Rivers state.

"The actions are continuous and are preparatory to the final war," the JRC threatened after 'the late Thursday blast.'

The attacks have yet to be confirmed.

Nigeria's main militant group, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, has also warned of renewed strikes on the country's oil and gas industry amid delays to an amnesty program proposed by the government of President Umaru Yar'Adua.

The delays have been partly caused by the absence of the ailing president who has handed the power to Vice President Goodluck Jonathan following Tuesday's parliamentary vote.
