A pipeline belonging to the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC), was last night reported destroyed by suspected insurgents around the Chanomi Creek, Warri South-West council area of Delta state.

As at the time of filing this report, no group had claimed responsibility. Details of the attack were also still sketchy at press time.

It was gathered that the pipeline, which supplies both Warri and Kaduna refineries, was attacked at about 7:40pm.
