Nigeria's Niger Delta Conflict Resumes As MEND Strikes AGIP Oil Pipeline

By Jomo Gbomo

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta has issued a press release detailing new plans to attack oil infrastructures in the Niger Delta region in Nigeria. The statement also outlined plans by the oil militant group to attack South African businesses and Niger Delta indigenes it claimed have betrayed the Niger Delta struggle.

See full text of press release below:
 
On Saturday the 4th of February at 1930hrs, fighters of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (M.E.N.D) attacked and destroyed the Agip trunk line at brass in Bayelsa State in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria.

This relatively insignificant attack is a reminder of our presence in the creeks of the Niger Delta and a sign of things to come.

We have constantly warned Nigerians about Goodluck Jonathan and his train of idiots running Nigeria. Events of the last few months have vindicated our position on the inability of this moron to lead Nigeria anywhere but downwards.

Rather than address serious issues facing the nation and its citizens, Goodluck Jonathan squanders public funds on tribalistic sycophants and thugs calling themselves ex-militants.

Nigerians should disregard the idle threats and ranting of imaginary militant groups and other hired “Jonathan praise singers”. Besides empty talk, they are unable to help Jonathan in any way. In fact most so called ex-militants are hiding in Abuja or Lagos, not venturing near their villages in the Niger Delta.

Our silence thus far, has been strategic and at the right time, we will reduce Nigerian oil production to zero and drive off our land, thieving oil companies. British petroleum is prepared to pay $25 billion compensation for the Gulf of Mexico oil spillage, yet for worse spillages in the Niger Delta; our people are paid with death at the hands of the Nigerian military.

In the dark days to come, MTN, SACOIL, and other South African investments will pay a heavy price for the interference of Jacob Zuma in the legitimate fight for justice in the Niger Delta, by its people. The South African President has reduced himself to the position of a hired thug for Goodluck Jonathan.

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (M.E.N.D) understands the negative impact our assault on the Nigerian oil industry will have on the ordinary citizen in a country which relies almost entirely on one source of revenue.

Unfortunately, the extremely irresponsible, floundering government of Nigeria is more concerned with enriching themselves and family members than attending to the problems of the Niger Delta and the continuously depreciating standard of living of the ordinary Nigerian.

A government incapable of managing roads, refineries, power stations and other basic infrastructure is again squandering valuable public funds on a committee tasked with investigating the viability of nuclear energy for electricity generation.

The government of Nigeria is incapable of safely disposing household refuse. How then do they plan to deal with the toxic by-product of nuclear energy? Nigerians must know that their ignoramus of a president is controlled by Obasanjo, Western nations, an imbecilic wife and an army of sorcerers.

In this new phase of our struggle for justice, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (M.E.N.D) will pay considerable attention to dealing with security forces and traitorous indigenes of the Niger Delta.

In this regard, MEND wishes to confirm that our fighters were responsible on the attack at Ogbobagbene in Burutu local government area of Delta State, on the compound of Godsday Orubebe, Minister for Niger Delta.

The general public is again advised to take very seriously, any warnings of impending bombings. Such warnings will always precede a bombing, providing sufficient time for evacuation.

Specific members of the security services and the media will in addition to email, receive notification of an impending attack, by SMS in order to minimize the possibility of civilian casualties.

Its very pathetic that till dis moment we r yet to know that the ordinary man is being used by rich in our society ahh boko haram,opc,odua,mend,etc hw long can we b used brethren you understand that all these blapping frm this criminals is to enrich themselfl and family, Nigeria you and i suffer today becos criminals like Ibb,buhari,obasanjo,atiku,jega,sanusi lamido who is adecendand of maitasine,abdulsalami,abacha,socalled royal fathers,etc cant we see using us to destroy our futures after going to schools giving little of what they loot frm the nation to kill our dreams to build our nation. Let anyone say he/she dont like peace,harmony and good living but 1 man with a 50 bedroom mansion with underground roads and living in borrowd apartments cant think only how Nigeria will seperat to whos merit? Fight like martin lutherking and africa great as europe we all want look like.Nigeria must remain let wickeds die for sins.one love long live true nigerians

9ice 1 mend

May God bless U Mend" this stupid donkey of a president ha to go.

stop d support of a war

I often say that if MEND and d so called militants really cared about their communities, why didn't they use some of the money gotten from the kidnappings to help the so called communitiies they are fighting for? Instead they buy expensive cars and houses with their ill gotten wealth. Secondly, ppl who are supporting a war or revolution should remember that the people they will encounter in d streets should such a think take place will be very angry illeterate Nigerians. They will show no mercy to the average literate and exposed people like the people sitting behind their computers or phones who are encouraging a war.

YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND!

It's time for dogs to stop barking when the moon passes because it won't help. GEJ is God-send and still have the calling. You must remain divided -religiously, ethnically and geographically so that he can lead us to deliverance.
Better you join train.

EXCELLENT JOB MEND!!!!

I've never been impressed by any group in Nigeria like am impressed by MEND. They are always straight forward with what they want when they are broke or they need more, after all it's their God given wealth to the exclusion of all because their forefathers worked hard to natured the resources so they should control it. Am so happy this group are going to actualize my dream of DISTROYING this evil union called NIGERIA. MORE GREASE TO YOUR ELBOW MEND. BOKO HARAM PLEASE HOLD ON YOUR FIRE MEND are going to do the job for you as no one will even look at them. GOODLUCK TO YOU MEND PLUS THE JONATHAN.

Amnesty party seems to be over

So soon, it appears the much celebrated amnesty has hit the rock in the usual manner of Nigeria Government's lack of capability to sustain any policy. May God save us, amin.

True sons and daughters of the Niger Delta and Nigeria

More grease to MEND! You are true and proud sons of the ND and Nigeria. As I said under the thread about Uncle David West asking bro Jonathan to fire the incompetent Okonjo-Iweala, we in the Niger Delta have principles. We are the first to criticize bro Jonathan if he does something wrong. This is more useful to him than some Ijaw wannabes from the Igbo SE who will always support any bad policy of his government, just for money. When a Deltan speaks the truth about the clueless bro Jona, these Ijaw wannabes say stupid things and call the person names. They claim one is not from the Delta simply because one is telling the truth about bro Jona and what is happening in Nigeria. We are happy that MEND is doing everything to avoid civilian casualties. Crooks like Okonjo-Iweala and Obasanjo are leading bro Jona astray.

Are all southerners MEND supporters?

Will I see comments saying all southerners are supporters of MEND who worship Yisa? When will I see comments insulting Prophet Yisa [PBUH] due to this move by MEND?
We really should be wise in our reactions and comments.

I wonder if u were of the

I wonder if u were of the government would you wish yourself dead? I'm confident enough to tell you this, Nigeria is blessed and she is set free from all this.

MEND's THREAT

ONE WONDERS ALONG WHICH LINE NIGERIA WILL EVENTUALLY BE SPLIT!!!!.
IS IT GOING TO BE "ETHNIC"?, "RELIGEOUS", "REGIONAL" OR EVEN "TERRORISM"??!!
THEY ALL HAVE THEIR SPONSORS!!;;;!!.

My exact same thoughts!

Anonymous@1701: Ok, timipre sylvia has lost out in the power game, and he has called his boys to resume their attacks as a result.

You know exactly what time it is buddy, you read my mind without blemish.

Sentiment

U r a big fool a very big 1! Talkin about nigeria as a whole n u r busy showin ur anger on religion mumu olodo idiot! Go suck ur mama's breast donkey.

@Mohamed Ahmed

The problem with most of u fulanis is that u think we are still in nigeria of 1954. Why dont you ask yourself how many people moslems militants have killed since nigeria gained her freedom. Unfortunatley most of these group come from the west african subregion to kill nigerians. are members of boko haram nigerians? That is why they want government to negotiate with them in saudi arabia. look at the way malians, chadians and somalis are being deported from the north. soon we shall send bakare away to niger republic. boko haram has a rival group behaving just like MEND. These are useless groups in the niger delta controlled by ciroma and some northern leaders

buhari spoilers on road show! let them show their face in ND

@tundemess-(RepublicReporters is in possession of an exclusive interview by Sheik Sani Haliru (ex-Boko Haram member, now a born again Christian) told reporters that he has close relationship with (Buhari) and Mohammadu Yusuf. Sheik Sani Haliru said: “I have worked so closely with Mohammadu Buahri for five years, and I can prove it that General Buhari is the most notable outspoken jihadist hardliner in Nigeria who is also strategically sponsoring Boko Haram)unquote. Soon tundmess would want us to tell him when buhari would be nabbed by GEJ. MEND is the most useless militant group on earth. Sadly there are spoilers in every org in the globe. We also have a splinter group in boko haram. So dont worry your soul over their empty threats. Even Buhari and bakare can post such and claim they are speaking for MEND. Look at the release! MEND started with resource control. Then derailed to fighting Jonathan. Were was their voice when Sylva was stealing their state blind? Animals

tundemash was this by deri also? ANPP gave birth to BH

I don't think MEND should be

I don't think MEND should be taken seriously; Militant groups have benefitted immensely from Government loot through their state governors. If they are truly sincere they should go after their state Governors whom just sit in office and embezzle all their money.

war against all corrupt leaders

this warning is not coming as a surprise to we the underworld citizen.the dice has be tuss and is now to take our right in our own hands.this is a clear warning ,many of our leaders in the niger deltans ,the governors,house of asemblies members,chairmen,senators,royal fathers,elders in community who pretends to represent the community.all this group will pay the prize for us the enjoy the wealth God has given us in the niger deltan.woe woe woe to u all.not even the security can protect u guys for the wroth of our anger.mend we are in support of ur mission to liberate the people of niger deltan.

I! I!! I SUPPORT!!!

Mend, this is what many ordinary Nigerians have said, that, we are being ruled by EVIL REGIME whose only interest is lining its pockets with the oil money --masses are already frustrated by their greed and Nigeria stink of CORRUPTION. Also, Mend should play its robbin hood role very well and know that the silent majority are behind them North and South, take the fight to the vagabonds, looters and sycophants alike abound in and out of govt. These criminals and their collaborators only listen when there is a ZERO CRUDE OIL PRODUCTION. Of what use is Oil, If no one except the criminals(Oligarchy) benefits. GEJ has betrayed the Environment, the people and Niger Delta.

WHERE THOSE STUPID SOUTHERNERS NOW?

I used to be an active member on SR comment contest after each controversial article! Not until some STUPID Souther sycopants with no space inn their hollow heads decided to turn the page into a haven wia they could lash out at Northerners inn the most Ignorant nd Ill informed manner! Stupid Goats, when even ur People on SR gave u facts nd points to use ur hollow brains u still Rant further!! Copying nd pasting killings of Igbos nd christians inn Kano, Bauchi , kaduna etc thru 1983, 1974 etc nd citing Qur'anic verses dat u. Can never Comprehend!! Foooooooooooooooolllsssss!!!!! Ur Fathers are all Bastards wiv Ogogoro Heads!!!
