Niger Delta Avengers say they will attack Nigeria's oil sector within days

YENAGOA, Nigeria, Jan 17 (Reuters) - Nigerian militant group Niger Delta Avengers said on Wednesday it will launch attacks on the country's oil sector in the next few days.

"This round of attacks will be the most deadly and will be targeting the deep sea operations of the multinationals," it said in a statement on its website.

In November, the group, which attacked oil facilities in 2016, said it had ended a ceasefire. (Reporting by Tife Owolabi; Writing by Alexis Akwagyiram; Editing by Adrian Croft)
