MEND issues fresh warning of attack in Abuja
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of hiding under the cloak of terrorist hunters after the October 1 car bomb blast in Abuja to witch-hunt, and falsely accusing and harassing its perceived opponents.
MEND spokesperson, Jomo Gbomo, in a statement warning of another bomb blast in Abuja yesterday said t he government of President Jonathan responded by arresting innocent persons on trumped-up charges, linking them with the attack.
“ From Chief Raymond Dokpesi which indirectly was pointing at former military head of state, General Ibrahim Babangida to Henry Okah in South Africa, the government has also named and arrested persons not connected with our actions as suspects and masterminds ”
“ The South African government is playing an obviously partial role over the Independence Day Bombing in it's handling of the Henry Okah angle because the Nigerian government has threatened to nationalize the South Africa communication giant, MTN if the country does not follow a devious script ” he said.
Gbomo ssaid s ince the court in South Africa has turned into a Kangaroo one that is scandalously biased, and both governments are bent on blaming innocent persons on ridiculous insinuations and unrelated evidence, MEND have decided to carry out another attack in Abuja without altering its mode of operation to proof the suspects innocence.
“ As usual we will give a thirty minutes advance warning to avoid civilian casualties then sit back and watch how the blame game will be played out on all those already falsely accused ” he said.
In an obvious attempt to intimidate anyone opposed to the presidential ambition of Goodluck Jonathan, the Nigerian government hiding under the cloak of terrorist hunters have been witch-hunting, falsely accusing and harassing its perceived opponents.
A perfect opportunity emerged on October 1, 2010 after the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) detonated car bombs in a symbolic attack in Abuja for which we reaffirm responsibility but with regrets to the avoidable loss of lives.
