A new Militant group which called itself Niger Delta Freedom Circle has emerged with a bang; the group has claimed responsibility for the bombing of NNPC delivery pipeline at Ihuona village in Ugbawka town in Nkanu West LGA, Enugu State. According to an investigation by The Biafra Post, the bombing of the NNPC delivery pipeline occurred in the early hours of Wednesday as at 3:30 am.

The delivery pipeline which heads down from Portharcourt and delivers refined products to Enugu NNPC major deport was said to be a sensitive installations according to the investigation by The Biafra Post. Speaking to residents who circulated the attack; they confirmed that they heard a strange explosion in the mid night only to wake up and found out that a delivery pipeline was bombed. They confirmed that the matter was reported to the police but they tend to sweep it under the carpet.

Enugu is not known for pipeline attacks but as this is coming from a new militant group; it cannot be ruled out that Biafra land will soon experience intense militant actions. Prior to this attack; Niger Delta Avengers and the compromised MEND had cast vote of no confidence on Nigeria Government and promised intense attack.

In a tweet to The Biafra Post with the twitter handle @NDFC8; the Commander of the new Militant group claimed responsibility and flared Nigerian news syndicates for not floating the attack. According to their initial tweet “We achieved success at 3:30am this date 11 of January 2017. Delivery pipeline at Ihuona village in Ugbawka town was bombed, confirm it!” in a clear move for publicity; they urged for investigation.

They further tweeted “Kudos to our brothers that have been doing us proud; we won’t fail anyone” listing their reasons , they mailed “ We want the immediate and unconditional release of all the freedom fighters including Nnamdi Kanu, total freedom for Biafra which Effiong our father fought for. We will make our full list public when we have done enough; Old Eastern region is our focus; no flow of oil in Biafra land until our major demands are met”

The group further promised attack in Anambra, Imo, Abia, and on all the pipeline installations in Biafra land to ensure zero flow of crude oil and refined crude. They posited that militancy will saturate Biafra land until Nnamdi Kanu is released and a way forward established. Indicating that the reason to start with Enugu is to pass a clear message that no part of Biafra land will be spared and the aim is to make sure Buhari sheds blood unless freedom is achieved.
