MEND’s Jomo Gbomo Dismisses Alleged Threat Letter… To Issue Formal Statement On Okah, Others Trial Soon

460-oil-wars_978593cIn apparent reaction to the threat letter purportedly signed by one  Comrade Azizi on behalf of Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, Jomo Gbomo, who is recognized in media circles as the spokesman for MEND, has dismissed Comrade Azazi as an impostor and disassociated his group from the statements allegedly credited to it.

See his response below:

Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta wishes to advise  Nigerians and the media to disregard the pathetic attempt at propaganda by a  so-called Comrade Azizi and his statements which are not authentic and  statements emanating from  MEND.

As claimed by this Comrade Azizi, the Movement for the Emancipation of the  Niger Delta (MEND) would like to clarify the following;

(1) Mr Henry Okah is NOT and has never being viewed as the leader or founder  of MEND but rather known as a sympathiser and supporter of our cause

(2) Our fighters are freedom fighters who are fighting for justice, the  emancipation of the Niger Delta and control of our God given resources and not  assassins as stated by this so-called Comrade Azizi

(3) Our struggle is NOT and has never being about the disintegration of  Nigeria or a North and South fight as stated by this so-called Comrade Azizi

With regards to the trial, judgement and sentencing of Henry Okah and other  Niger Delta indigenes, we will issue a full formal statement in due course  stating our views and plans for the future.

The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) would once again  strongly urge Nigerians and the media to disregard any statement from this  person.

Jomo Gbomo
