When Is Jomo Gbomo Surrendering Is Own Weapons?

Everyday on tv, you get to see one militant group or the other laying down theirs and embracing the amnesty offer of the government. But the question mark I have hanging on my head right now is 'When is Jomo Gbomo the spokesman that is always present at every gun battle MEND have with the JTF and who takes part in all attacks on oil installations going to come out and lay down his own weapons?' That is if he really exists.

What is coming from the guys month regarding the situation/whatz going on in political and financial circle in nigeria is shocking. I wouldn't be surprised if anything like war erupt in Nigeria today, don't be suprise it will come from an unlikely source.

You are very correct. There will be serious trouble ahead.

I advice those who can leave the country to leave.

Those who have business should consider moving it to ghana.

Those who have investment in the oil sector should take their money and run.

Those who are rich should consider their safety. Kidnapping is a sign of this revolution.

Yes, a revolution is sweeping across nigeria.

Well, if the government is not prepared for all that then the confrontation that is to come would make the initial ones look like child's play. I know MEND is not making empty threats as they have shown a massive capacity for carrying out their threats.

is the government ready for complete devolution of power and the right of self determination given back to the people? Are they ready for true federalism of confederation?  I doubt. There will be trouble ahead because MEND's demand are rigid and the government is pennywise and a pound foolish.

Isn't it about time the FG calls MEND for a frank talk and the way forward?

Mend Says Disarmament Process A Charade, Vows Resumption Of Hostility After Sept

MEND says disarmament process a charade, vows resumption of hostility after September 15 2009

Written by Jomo Gbomo

"There are still too many! Bring them down to the spring, and I will sort out who will go with you and who will not" - God to Gideon (Judges 7:5)

The ongoing amnesty program by the government of Nigeria seems to have achieved separating those who still have the zeal to fight for our freedom from those who were in it for the money.

Today, Saturday, August 22, 2009 that sorting process was again re-enacted in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state where weapons mostly bought by the government were displayed and the boys separated from the men in the circus.

The charade witnessed in Bayelsa is not an indication of success but that of failure considering that the energy put into that event could have been better used in deliberating on the root issues collated in the Niger Delta Technical Committee report which addressed such germane issues from the Willink's Commission of 1958 to date.

In the midst of such sheer deceit, MEND will be compelled to resume with ferocious attacks on the oil industry at the end of our ceasefire on September 15, 2009 to prove that weapons being displayed are mostly government-owned and those surrendering them have not been part of the previous campaigns like Hurricanes Barbarossa, Piper Alpha and Moses that brought the government to their knees.

We have also suspended talks with the Special Adviser to the President on the amnesty, Mr. Timi Alaibe who like the government, expects a disarmament without the real issues being addressed.

MEND will not enter into talks with governors from the region who have tainted the amnesty program with politics and monetary inducements.

Many of the boys who have received money today will at best squander it on material things and what happens next can best be left to the imagination.

Our solemn pledge to the people of the Niger Delta still remains to emancipate the region from the forces that have held it down for over 50 years with divide and rule, monetary inducements and treachery.

Why do some of you like wallowing in ignorance. How can you say Mr Gbomo does not exist. Maybe that is not his real name but there is surely a personality behind those writings. If you read his writeup, you will see that they always follow a style and personality.

Hanoobabay@ Why would you think mr Gbomo is in every MEND battle? Has he ever said he was there? He is the spokeperson of MEND. After every battle, the fighters involved inform him of the details so that he can in turn inform the media.

And to your initial question of when he will return his arms. I know you have not been following MEND's writings because if you have, you won't be asking this question. MEND's position has always been that they don't recognise the amnesty and as such will not be returning arms. The government will struggle to get up to 5% of the arms currently in the niger delta. It seems you have so much hope on this amnesty stuff. Please don't, otherwise you will be very disappointed at the end.

So you still have not known that Gbomo Jomo does not exist? He is no different from Sani Umaru; a fictitious character.

Gbomo Jomo is nobody, so anybody can be Gbomo Jomo. I can't explain it further than that.

what weapons are u talking about?

his computer? e-mail address? mobile phone?

The most important weapon of the fictitous character called Jomo Gbomo is propaganda. His tools are tools which are available to you and I on nairaland.

If he negotiates those tools for millions with the government then he is truly a smart guy.
