A Nigerian militant group, which has claimed a string of attacks on oil pipelines in the Niger Delta, said on Thursday the region might break away.

"We want our resources back to restore the essence of human life in our region for generations to come because Nigeria has failed to do that," the Niger Delta Avengers group said on its website.

"The world should not wait until we go the (way of) Sudan," it said, referring to South Sudan's secession in 2011.
