Daily Independent (Lagos): Nigeria: Shell Debunks Allegations Of Attack On Militants

Thursday, 16 February 2006

Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) yesterday denied allegations by the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND).

The military choppers belonging to the Joint Task Force (JFT) on security in the Niger Delta used its Osubi Airport to launch attacks on private facilities in Warri, Delta State.
A company spokesman said in a text message that the JTF helicopter, during their routine surveillance in the area, sighted some illegal oil bunkering barges and decided to destroy them.
He did not, however, give details but it was gathered that since Tuesday’s ultimatum by MEND which gave multinational oil workers 96 hours to vacate the Niger Delta region, the Federal Government’s security outfit has resolved not to leave any thing to chance to avoid being taken unawares by the militants as was the case in the past.
