The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has issued a statement asking the public to disregard the list of suspects released by the Joint Task Force (JTF) regarding to the bombing of the AGI-ENI pipeline. The statement stated that the JTF was merely framing innocent people.
See full statement below:
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) advises Nigerians to disregard the pathetic attempt at propaganda by a very unintelligent spokesperson of the Joint Task Force (JTF), Col Timothy Antigha. As confirmed in early 2011, all statements posted on Saharareporters and the times of Nigeria websites are authentic MEND statements.
Just as Goodluck Jonathan attempted to blame our bomb attacks of 1 October, 2010, on northern politicians, it is very convenient for the Nigerian government to again frame innocent people. We hope the government of Nigeria has apprehended all persons declared wanted as in the next few weeks we will carry our more serious attacks on the Nigerian oil industry. Then, we wonder what tales the daft spokesman for the Nigerian military will have for the media.
