The Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (Mend)

"Mend expressed its willingness to embrace a genuine and transparent peace programme without getting any response. The ripple effect of this attack will touch your economy and people one way or the other and hope we now have your attention," it said in a statement.

It said that the attacks were a "way of saying 'welcome'" to a US warship, the high-speed vessel Swift, which has been visiting the Gulf of Guinea to conduct training with the Nigerian navy.

The group emerged in early 2006, launching bombing attacks on Nigeria's oil infrastructure that cut about one-quarter of the usual oil output in Africa's biggest crude producer.

It wants a greater share of oil revenues for areas that remain deeply poor despite the the country being Africa's biggest oil producer
