ABUJA, June 7 (Reuters) – Nigeria will start a dialogue with the Niger Delta Avengers militant group which has been claiming a string of attacks, its oil minister said.
President Muhammadu Buhari had appointed a team "to begin the process of a very intensive dialogue with those caught in the middle of this," Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu said late on Monday.
He also said the country's oil output was between 1.5 million and 1.6 million barrels a day.
