The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) has claimed responsibility for the attack on a Joint Task Force patrol boat on

Saturday in the Nembe-Bassanbiri waterways in Bayelsa State.

“This relatively insignificant attack is a reminder of our presence in the creeks of the Niger Delta and a sign of things to come,” the group said in a statement on Sunday.  “Contrary to speculations, they were not “sea pirates”, but a new group of MEND ‘Trainee fighters’.”

It further stated that its silence thus far has been strategic and that at the right time, it will reduce Nigerian oil production to zero by 2015 and “drive

off our land, all thieving oil companies.”

According to the statement, “In this new phase of our struggle for justice, the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND) will pay

considerable attention to dealing with the occupying Nigerian government forces in the Niger Delta that stand in our way.”
