The Movement for the Emancipation for the Niger Delta (MEND) Thursday claimed responsibility for the attack on the oil facilities owned by the Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) and the Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC) in Delta and Bayelsa State.

In a statement by its spokesman, Gbomo Jomo, MEND stated that “at about 0300Hrs today Thursday, March 27, 2014, scuba divers from the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) revisited the Shell Forcados Sub-C pipeline in the Western Delta which we had sabotaged earlier on Saturday, March 01, 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’. The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) also takes responsibility for the Thursday, March 20, 2014 attack on the Agip crude oil and gas pipelines in Ikarama Oil Fields located in Bayelsa State,” the statement said.

Shell has announced plans to sell its 97 km Nembe Creek oil pipeline, which has been regularly attacked by oil thieves. The company has also announced planned sales of other assets in Nigeria due to frequent attack by oil thieves.
