The death of an ex-Niger Delta militant’s father could increase tensions in Nigeria

The father of an ex-Niger Delta militant leader has reportedly died following injuries sustained during incursions by the Nigerian military, potentially exacerbating tensions in the crisis-hit oil-producing region. The Niger Delta has been the site of regular militant activity since earlier in 2016,

as groups including the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) have blown up oil pipelines and cut the country’s oil production by more than 700,000 barrels per day (bpd). Government Ekpemupolo better known as Tompolo is a leading figure in the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), which led an insurgency in the Niger Delta in the mid-2000s.
