Nov 2nd, 2012 – MEND Responds To Boko Haram’s Request, Demands Release Of Leader, Henry Okah

In response to an article on Boko Haram’s Demand For Dialogue, just received an email from Comrade Azizi, an official of MEND (Movement For The Emancipation Of the Niger Delta) demanding the release of their leader Henry Okah and withdrawal of troops from the Niger Delta region.

The group warned if Boko Haram‘s demand is granted all the request in the letter below must be granted otherwise, they’ll launch a violent attack.

A copy of the official statement below


We read with great concern reports attributed to one Abu Mohammed Ibn Abdulaziz the spokes person of the sect on the dailies this morning the 2nd of November 2012 outlining conditions to end its campaign of violence against the Federal Government and the citizens alike.

The high command of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta wishes to inform the Federal Government and all security agencies in Nigeria that if these conditions given by boko haram are granted without the release of our dear leader (Henry Okah) and other members of our movement, there will be serious consequences which with our latest technological know-how, will affect the entire country including the oil and non oil sectors respectively.

It is regrettable that for the past 52 years of independence, the Federal Government has failed in it’s responsibilities to protect the lives and properties of the Niger Deltans and most importantly, handing over the control of our resources to the region rather the Federal Government finds it appropriate to use the money generated from our resources in developing other regions which we no longer can take.

As a matter of urgency, the Federal Government is here conditioned as follows:

(a) Stop further prosecution of our leader (Henry Okah)
(b) Release all members of the movement held in various detention centers in Nigeria
(c) Compensate families of our members killed by the Government security
(d) Withdraw all military personnel and tanks in the region
(e) Handing over resource control to the region.

Consequently we have resolved to launch an aggressive and bloody campaign against all military and oil installations in the whole of the country if these conditions stated above are not granted.

    There is only one solution: kill corruption, and kill all terrorists and former terrorists in our country, including mEND and boko haram.

      MEND should stop intimidating us,the innocent Nigerians,because our late president Yar’Adua has done something good in that region.So they should abide by the promises they made to ceasefire and leave federal govt wt Boko Haram alone,for thy will surely ripe what thy plant.

    Nigerian’s should. Pls collaborate and bring out henry okah from where ever they put him and also change the land use act. Before they compensate innocent peoples killer and whose so ever you call yourselfs, if u people like to put it in dialogue or not for now we know all ur aims but this name “boko haram can never take over this nation so just decide and change ur plans and if u people will still continue on this habit then just prepare for second civil war in Nigeria. from official of MENd.

    Gov. can't obey any of their request either BH or MEND, is just like asking the Gov. to pay 4 d innocent souls dey hav wasted. They are still fools, the only way to make peace is to sincerely apologize to the country as a whole n not hold d country to ransom.

    Well spoken, Nigerians parade themselves all over the world as citizens of one of the big oil producing countries in rhe world & that pride is owened to the great people of Niger delta, iam not from that state though but as a citizen of this country, i can see where the truth of rhe matter lies. The people of the Niger delta has throughout the history of this country been cheated & rob of their God given natural resources, persecuted, jailed & in many cases hanged just for daring to voice their opinion on important matters that concerns them; but the real truth of the matter is that if this resources were to be in the nothern part of this country, the northerners would before now created another Saudi Arabia.

    There is a great difference here, Boko Haram is a terrorist group, while Mend is a group fighting for its rights & freedom of oppression.My advice to Mend is in the course of your acctivities, do not harm innocent citizens because many of us feel your pains and are with you. differenciate yourself from this so called myopic, uneducated and aimless Boko haram terrorist group.

    I will advise MEND to first deal with all niger deltian politicians who did nothing to the development of the region. Moreso examine urself bcos they wil still use u to chase away development from the region as u pursued julius Berger from rivers state.

    Mend are fighting for the development of Niger Delta, what is Boko Haram fighting for. What has the innocent citizens they’ve killed done.

    Our leaders think they are wise enough to steal from us. Our children had been adviced to go to school for them to be the leaders of tommorow but yet the same bad corrupt leaders are still there stealing the possesion of our children. Our leaders are criminals .a day will come when a man will mobilize people and fight against the federal and state government. So my people we are slaves in the hands of our leaders. Our forces guides them. We re not safe.

    MEND; you have no got to speak like this to the people of Nigerian. If i may ask you what is the reason for the bomb henry okoh made. That is absolutely you know have many lives he has taken through is bombing things??? And you are here saying you are fighting for your right. Is this how things should be done??? I beliver you are educated fellow why not taken the matter to the court instead of bombing and fighting for yourslve. So u want henry to be release and you said you are fighting for your right is that how to fight??? Emmanuel,God is with us

    And to the boko haram. Is it Allah that say you should that he need blood??? Cos when you wanna kill, you read ur quran but let me tell you something. God never forget the people of isrealite when they are in danger. God will never forget us. I know it will soon be over for you. God is real and Jesus is alife.

    Those that kill by sword will surely die by it. Believers and followers of CHRIST ”fear not he that destroys the body but HE that has power to destroy both body and soul” this are all signs of endtime .The man that is boasting of killing don’t even knw what will happen to him the next second. When king nebuchadnezzar boasted of his strength that very moment his kingdom departed from him and he became a beast in the bush to the extent that even the wild beasts where scared of him. What a GOD OF VENGEANCE we serve. What happened to Adolp Hitler of Germany? What of Idiami of Uganda? Jst a few to mention.. Their end was nothing to write home about. Be of good courage followers of CHRIST, for HE that keepeth watch over us neither sleeps nor slumber….. HAVE FAITH.
