MEND urges House to summon Jonathan over Malabu Oil deal

*Ex-President Jonathan.

18 April 2017, Sweetcrude, Lagos – The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, MEND, has urged the House of Representatives to go ahead and summon former President Goodluck Jonathan to explain his role in the controversial Malabu Oil deal.

The group said in a statement obtained by SweetcrudeReports that it was in support of planss by the House to invite Jonathan over the matter.

The statement issued by the spokesman of the militant group, Jomo Gbomo, read: “Where he refuses to honour the invitation, we urge the House to invoke its inherent powers to compel his appearance.

“Like millions of Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora who have keenly followed the OPL 245 saga, we have reasonable grounds to suspect that President Jonathan may have indeed compromised his high office with regard to the matter, more especially, given the fact that key officials of his administration, including the then Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Mr. Mohammed Bello Adoke, have been indicted and charged before the Federal High Court in Abuja.”
