Militants launched new attacks in the Niger Delta on Thursday, vowing to bring struggling oil industry to a total halt.

The army said militants killed six people on Wednesday when they ambushed a boat belonging to state oil firm NNPC in the Warri area.

Separately, the Niger Delta Avengers group said it had attacked two crude pipelines operated by Italy’s ENI.

“At about 2:00a.m today @NDAvengers blew up the Ogboinbiri to Tebidaba and Clough Creek to Tebidaba Crude Oil pipelines in Bayelsa State,” the group said on Twitter.

“This is in line with our promise to all international oil companies and indigenous oil companies that Nigeria oil production will be zero.”

The Avengers group has claimed responsibility for other recent attacks on Chevron and Shell facilities.
