Ex-militants confirm hijack of MEND by Northern cabal

(Vanguard) A faction of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger-Delta, MEND, led by ex-militant leader, “General” John Togo, weekend, alleged that some Northern leaders have, indeed, infiltrated the militant group with a view to causing mayhem in the country, and warned that if anything happened to President Gooduck Jonathan, the group would lend a hand to dismember the nation.

The group in a statement signed by its factional spokesman, “Captain” Mark Anthony, said, “We want to say that the politics of do-or-die of the Northern caliphate in Nigeria by impersonating our logo to cause mayhem is very unpatriotic and provocative to us and it is capable of creating national chaos, if the perpetrators do not stop their evil act”.

In the words of the group, “Nigeria must not forget the fact that former Head of State, Alhaji Ibrahim Babangida, IBB, is a coupist and specialized in fomenting trouble. What is happening is some of IBB’s military evil tactics he has employed to discredit President Jonathan’s administration before the international communities”.

“How could we fight ourselves and the people of Niger Delta? President Goodluck Jonathan is part of God’s reward on post-amnesty gains to the people of Niger Delta Enough is enough!”
