Nigeria: Delta Militants Threaten New Offensive

| January 27, 2013 | 0 Comments

Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta, the umbrella body for all militant groups in Nigeria’s Niger Delta on Saturday broke its more than a year-long silence with a stern warning to the government in South Africa to stop meddling in Nigeria’s internal politics or risk dire consequences.

The group also threatened to attack Nigeria like never before, in a manner that might lead to the disintegration of the country.

In a strong worded statement dated January 23, 2013 and signed by one Comrade Azizi, MEND said last week’s conviction of its leader and founder, Henry Okah by the South African Supreme Court on all 13 counts charge of complicity in the 2010 Independence Day bombing in Abuja amounted to a betrayal.

Describing the conviction as part of “Aso Rock politics on a man simply because he refused to be bought over”, the militant group said its High Command is compelled to advise South Africans to tell their government to stay away from Nigeria.
