Rebel Group The Niger Delta Avengers Threatens One of World's Largest Oil Supplies

Rebel Group The Niger Delta Avengers Threatens One of World's Largest Oil SuppliesWhile Nigerian soldiers battle Boko Haram militants in the north, a new radical group has emerged from the southern swamplands, threatening to wage war on one of the world’s largest oil supplies. The group calls itself the Niger Delta Avengers, and it has claimed responsibility for a spate of recent attacks and bombings on oil pipelines and terminals in Nigeria’s southern region, the Niger Delta, a top oil-producing region. The group has targeted major platforms belonging to Shell and Chevron in the past few weeks, and its attacks have driven the country’s oil output to a near 22-year low.
