The U.S. Mission to Nigeria is monitoring reports of attacks and other incidents in the Niger Delta. We share the concerns of all Nigerians about these attacks. Furthermore, the United States remains supportive of efforts, including the promotion of dialogue, to address grievances in the Niger Delta. We encourage all parties to resolve their disputes through peaceful means and emphasize that human rights of all Nigerians must be protected.
We continue to call on all Nigerians to persevere in efforts to achieve common goals: to end violence and curb the activities of criminal elements; to establish conditions and mechanisms for profound, positive, and lasting changes in the region; and to provide economic opportunity and needed services for residents of the Niger Delta.
Opinion: Their interest which is oil has been threatened. If these attacks continue, inter atonal oil prices might go up, which would indirectly drive bills higher in the United States. They would hope to quell the attacks. Furthermore, the attacks will negatively affect host communities, much more than any part of the country/world. More like self inflicted wounds.
