  • Militants sympathetic to ipob leader blew up Forcados oil pipeline: Demand release of Kanu

Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited (SPDC) has declared force majeure on Forcados liftings effective 3 pm Nigerian time February 21.
According to a  statement signed by spokesperson of She’ll, Bamidele Odugbesan, the development followed the disruption in production caused by the spill on the Forcados Terminal subsea crude export pipeline.
The statement said: “SPDC is intensifying efforts on containment and oil recovery from the February 14, 2016 spill, while also finalising repair plans.”
It will be recalled that a militant group sympathetic to the detained leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, which called itself Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) had blew up the Forcados export terminal as part of the pressure to get the federal government to release Mr Kanu.
The group claimed that the had sympathisers from the North, East and Western parts of the Nigeria.
Mr Kanu is facing charge of Treason before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, slammed  on him by the Directorate of Secret Service (DSS) on account of alleged activities of his group which calls for the secession of the old eastern part of Nigeria.
His arrest and detention had sparked weeks of streets by his supporters mainly of Igbo speaking extraction in places made up of old eastern state.
