In February 2016, a new militant group, the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) was launched with the self-stated agenda of crippling the country’s crude production. The group carried out its first attack on a gas line on February 10th, 2016. This was followed by other coordinated attacks on oil and gas  installations that has reduced the country’s oil and gas production, with a devastating effect on the country’s economy. The federal government has responded to the renewed restiveness with mass deployments of security forces, including gunboats, warships and fighter jets in the region.

This policy brief gives a general overview and update on resurgence of militancy in the Niger Delta.
