YENAGOA, Nigeria (Reuters) - Militants have attacked the Nembe pipeline in Nigeria’s Delta region, a local official said on Saturday, hours after the Niger Delta Avengers militant group claimed a strike on the facility.

“We heard multiple attacks last night,” said Bello Bina, a local official in Bayelsa state, confirming that the Nembe pipeline carrying Bonny Light crude exports had been hit.
