The Movement for the Emancipa­tion of the Niger Delta (MEND) has distanced itself from the meeting of former lead­ers and ex-commanders of the militant organisation called by one of its found­ing members, Government Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo.
Tompolo in the notice of meeting personally signed by him had called for the......
meeting Friday at Izon House, Yena­goa in what is seen as moves to resuscitate their faction of MEND which left when they embraced the Federal Gov­ernment Amnesty programme under late President Umaru Yar Adua.
However MEND in a state­ment by its spokesman, Jomo Gbomo said the group disso­ciates itself from the meeting.
According to him the meet­ing is an assembly of dubious contractors who are reacting because of the moves by the President Muhammadu Bu­hari administration to probe the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan over allegations of corruption.
Gbomo while reaffirming the support of MEND for the Buhari administration in its decision to probe the Jona­than government added that the probe should include the former First Lady and the Niger Delta Amnesty Pro­gramme.
