Nigerian Oil Militants, MEND, Strikes Again! Agip Pipeline Bombed!
Sat Feb, 04 2012


Nigeria’s main oil militants operating in Niger Delta region, Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) today said its fighters have sabotaged an oil pipeline that belongs to Italian oil company, Agip.

The group, which has been silent for about a year now also claimed responsibilty for the attack at Ogbobagbene in Burutu local government area of Delta State, on the compound of Godsday Orubebe, Minister for Niger Delta two weeks ago.

A statement released by MEND to www.thetimesofnigeria.com and other international media organizations states:

“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 slowpoke to lead Nigeria anywhere but downwards.

This is all Jonathan's fault. He should have let Sylva continue as Governor as agreed but greed from people like Orubebe and Azazi has brought back violence to Niger Delta. It is still early enough to prevent the escalation of violence in Bayelsa.

This is very much like the Jos crisis where they should have suspended election, knowing fully well that declaring any candidate would lead to bloodshed. Please you people should not destroy Bayelsa.

Wonder why they've been quiet for over a year?

It's all part of GEJ's plan to break up the country,

Oct. 1 - MEND BOMBING
GEJ - It wasn't MEND
OKAH - The Presidency asked us to implicate the North.
UN BOMBING - Boko Haram
Jan 1st - No bombing
Jan 1st - Oil Subsidy

After protests and strikes - BOKO HARAM (KANO)

and the story continues,


FEB 14TH - Boko Haram (With love from Boko) coming to a town near you,

Nigeria's Niger Delta Conflict Resumes As MEND Strikes AGIP Oil Pipeline
Posted: February 5, 2012 - 04:23

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 slowpoke 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.

I have always said it that the whole AMNESTY program being run by the Federal Government is a Sham. No real effort has been taken till date to alleviate the sufferings of people in the Niger Delta.

Guy, that's how they always start!

They are recounting the same issues that made them pick up arms years back. It's still
an act of terrorism.

Like they really care about any development. All they are fighting for is their own share of the loot!!!

It's not new- we have been down this road before.!

you are correct jare, if they really care, they should be attacking their so called leaders and not destroying what is already on ground. They should ask why Niger Delta is still under developed with so much money getting to the area from government and oil companies.
Re: M E N D Strikes: Blow Up Agip Facility In Bayelsa On Saturday 4th February by psalmizt(m): 11:32am On Feb 05, 2012
Yes we 've been down this road before but really, how hard is it for the govt to demonstrate their willingness to lessen the burden on the masses, If govt has shown any genuine interest in solving the problem of waste and corruption I don't think people will have much to say, Neutrals like me and you who are not carrying any weapon will av absolutely no reason to support actions of militancy, For me, All that MEND has said is true regardless of what any govt agency or agent has to say, Now the question of whether it is a political vendetta is anoda angle to the whole thing,
Lesson therefore is: Live a blameless life and then your accusers will have nothin to hold against you,

Like you don't know that these leaders don't reside in the Niger Delta, And usually they are heavily armed. Any attack on a highly placed individual in the Niger Delta will be misconstrued and then people will start comparing them to those blood thirsty islamist. Cripple the govt just like in the case of strikes and then everybody will listen.

What do you guys have to say to this particular point:
