A group, The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), took responsibility for the fire.

According to a Nigerian newspaper, PUNCH, MEND released an email statement signed by its spokesperson, Jomo Gbomo.

Below is the statement from MEND as culled from the website of PUNCH newspaper.

“The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta takes responsibility for the sabotage this morning, Tuesday, October 22, 2013 inside the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation’s refinery in Warri, Delta State of Nigeria.

Hurricane Exodus was intended to burn down the entire refining facility. As long as President Goodluck Jonathan continues to rely on an unsustainable and fraudulent Niger Delta Amnesty Programme, peace and security will continue to elude his government in the region. Hurricane Exodus is on course.”
