Militant groups asks MEND to steer clear of Niger Delta matters

By Bartholomew Madukwe
Niger Delta Creek warriors and other Militant groups in Niger Delta have kicked against activities of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) in the region and warned them to steer clear of matters of the Niger Delta.

The militants in joint statement signed by “General Christ Etareotu  Spokesperson Niger Delta Creek warriors(NDCW), Brig General: Etigbein Oghene. Spokesperson Ogunuma Camp of Niger Delta(OCOND). General Ovie Yinks spokesperson Niger Delta Redemption Fighters Coalition group(RFCG). And General Santana Otuks Spokesperson Niger Delta Republic Seekers (NDRS) and Brig General Esuku Friday spokesperson Niger Delta Green Revolutionaries(NDGR), explained that MEND had everything it took to actualise the dream of the Niger Delta people’s republic then, but they dropped the struggle and collected stipends which they now live fat on.

They said: “What has the disbanded elements called MEND done for the people in the Niger Delta, knowing fully well the kind of resources that was given to them by the Goodluck Jonathan administration through the Nigeria Amnesty office.

“What did they do with the Amnesty money. They never deem it feet to empower the youths in the region. Rather they enrich themselves, with surveillance contracts money, NDDC contracts, converted the militants monthly stipends to their family members, forgotten the people who died for them to actualise their dreams. What does MEND actually have against PANDEF rather than their personal and selfish reasons.”

According to the Militant groups, MEND is the original contributor to recent crisis in the region and should henceforth decease from matters of the Niger Delta and stop deceiving youths.

“We the various militants groups in region as decided to throw our wait behind the PANDEF. We are OK and we now have confidence in the PANDEF, which is led by Papa  E.K Clark. Henceforth MEND should distance themselves from matters of the Niger delta region. Long leave federal republic of Nigeria, Long leave federal republic of Niger Delta.
