Alleged Abuja Bombing: We Exploded Two Fuel Tankers In FCT – MEND

3 weeks after it called-off what it described as planned attacks on mosques and related institutions over the bombings and killing of southerners in the North by Boko Haram insurgents, the Movement for Emancipation of the Niger-Delta, MEND, claimed it struck in the early hours of Saturday in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.
The militant group said it secretly attached portable military limpet explosives on two articulated petrol tanker vehicles outside the NNPC depot in Abaji, Abuja, at about 5.00 am and detonated the devices.
Sunday Vanguard could not verify the claim at press time while the media manager of Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), a subsidy of the NNPC, Nasir Imodagbe, denied the bombing claim.

Killing of 12 policemen: MEND claims responsibility

Maku advises MEND not to make trouble over Okah’s Conviction

Abuja – The Minister of Information, Mr Lebaran Maku, said in Abuja on Sunday that it would be wrong for any group to foment trouble in Nigeria as a result of Henry Okah’s conviction in South Africa.  A South African court convicted Okah for his involvement in the Oct.1, 2010 bombings in Abuja.
After the court’s judgment, the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND) threatened to attack South Africa and cause trouble in Nigeria.
Maku said it would be wrong for any group or individual to have anything against Nigeria as Henry Okah was tried and convicted in South Africa.
