WARRI—MOVEMENT for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, yesterday, claimed it attacked the Forcados Sub-C pipeline, operated by Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company, in Delta State.
The group’s spokesman, Jomo Gbomo, in a statement, said “At 0300 hrs today (yesterday), scuba divers from MEND revisited the Shell Forcados Sub-C pipeline in the Western Delta which we had sabotaged earlier on March 1, 2014.
“We were successful in causing further damage to the on-going repair works, inflicting the heaviest toll ever on the oil industry since the commencement of ‘Hurricane Exodus.
“MEND also takes responsibility for the March 20, 2014 attack on Agip crude oil and gas pipelines in Ikarama Oil Fields located in Bayelsa State,” it said.
