The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) condemns the recent extrajudicial killings of squatters and injuries to several others in the Apo district of Abuja by a team of unprofessional government security forces whom the spokeswoman for the State Security Service (SSS), Ms Marilyn Ogar, branded as Boko Haram terrorists in her statement filled with lies and fabrication.
The recent revelation from credible security sources of a plot to plant weapons in the uncompleted building as evidence, confirms the same action carried out by the same spokeswoman, Marylyn Ogar after our October 01, 2010 twin car bomb blasts in Abuja , in which she announced that a thorough investigation revealed that the car bombs were detonated by mobile phones. They later contradicted themselves in a South African High Court during Henry Okah’s sham trial when another State Security Service operative testified that the same car bombs were detonated by timing mechanisms supplied by Mr Charles Okah. Other false and misleading statements made by Ms Marylyn Ogar after our October 01, 2010 twin bomb blasts to hoodwink Nigerians and the world was that the perpetrators were captured on Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) which the world is yet to see.
The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) were equally astonished after our October 01, 2010 twin bomb blasts to see that critiques and political opponents of Goodluck Jonathan which included Former Head of State and 2011 Presidential Aspirant, General Ibrahim Babangida, Chief Raymond Dokpesi Mallam Nasir El Rufai and the Okah brothers were either falsely accused or arrested as accomplices or perpetrators. Following in the footsteps of former despot Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire who branded his opponents as “Communists”, a label guaranteed to make the United Sates government turn a blind eye to his human rights atrocities, the same is happening in Nigeria today where the trending name of “Terrorists” and “Terrorism” is enough for Nigerians not to pay attention to deceit, human rights abuses, setups, wrongful arrests and detention, sham trials and extrajudicial killings.
The rudderless Ship of State is drifting deeper and deeper into an enveloping forge of lies told by government functionaries whose careers would be destroyed by the truth.
