News Release: MEND Suspends “Operation Barbarossa”

In spite of several provocative and careless utterances by so-called South-South elders led by Chief Edwin K Clark testing our resolve to carry out our planned attacks on mosques and other related agencies of religious intolerance, the intervention of well meaning Nigerians, religious bodies and the Nigerian government’s recent show of sincerity with the order to release from detention women, children, relatives and suspected Boko Haram members giving room for genuine dialogue has been taking into serious consideration. We have also heeded to the appeal from Mr Henry Okah and Mr. Kingsley Kuku, Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs.

To these effects, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (M.E.N.D) hereby announces the suspension of “Operation Barbarossa” which was to have commenced from Friday, May 31, 2013, with immediate effect.

We use this opportunity to call for the release of Henry Okah and others in detention over the October 01, 2010, twin car bomb blast.
