Another Deadly Militant Group Emerges in Niger Delta - Vows More Gas Plant Attacks?

A new militant group which goes by the name, Utorogu Liberation Movement has announced its emergence in the Niger Delta region.

The group's major focus is mainly on gas plants as it has threatened to attack West Africa’s biggest gas plant, Otorogu Gas Plant in Udu and Ughelli South council Areas of Delta State.

Report says the group in a banner message issued by Gen. K. Omovudu and others which was placed near the Motor Park in Out-Jeremi, headquarters of Ughelli South council, also declared support for the Niger Delta Avengers.

ULM also vowed to blow up oil facilities along the Oil Mining Lease 34 and other oil facilities in the upland parts of the Niger Delta.

The banner mission statement read, “My good people of Utorogun community, Otu-Jeremi, Otor-Udu, Iwkrekan, Ekakpamre and all oil and pipeline communities within this region, this is the voice of ULM in collaboration with outgas force.

“It is a secessionist move. The awareness of things happening in our environment is a means to outline our course of action. The awareness is an agitation for economic balance. We have a common enemy, the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company, NPDC and ND Western who hate your progress and wish you die in poverty.”
