Watch your mouth, MEND warns Buratai

THE Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, last night, cautioned the Chief of Army Staff, Lt General Tukur Burutai, to stick to his principal responsibility and stop making political and inciting statements.

MEND in a statement by its spokesperson, Jomo Gbomo, frowned at comments, Monday, in Port Harcourt by Burutai that military authorities would resort to the use of force if dialogue to resolve the current Niger-Delta crisis fails.

Its words: “MEND hereby makes it clear that General Buratai’s statement is insensitive, provocative, unprofessional and prejudicial to the fair outcome of the ongoing preliminary talks regarding the Niger Delta crisis between representatives of oil companies and security agencies, on the one hand; and the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), on the other hand.” The militant group asserted: “We, therefore, warn the Chief of Army Staff to guard his utterances, refrain from making political and inflammatory statements and stick to his primary responsibility.” Read more
