According to reports, MEND specifically advised Chevron to evacuate its Tank Farm in Escravos as it is one of the targeted spots. In a statement released by Gbomo Jomo, the militant group said they have reviewed its Hurricane Exodus and are satisfied with the reduced oil output caused by pipeline vandalism.

The statement reads in part:

“The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta is so far satisfied with the steady destructive progress of ‘Hurricane Exodus’ which has reduced Nigeria’s oil output significantly through our sustained sabotage of pipelines. We will also continue to turn a blind eye to the crude oil merchants passing through our territories because their activities, apart from toll paid us, is helping to achieve our objectives of zero oil output by 2015.

We use this medium to advice workers at the Chevron Tank Farm in Escravos to evacuate the premises as mortar attacks are imminent on Tuesday, October 01, 2013 from 00:01Hrs Nigerian time.”
