Based on multi-actor research, including interviews and focus group discussions with community members, military authorities, 42 ex-insurgents directly involved in illegal oil bunkering and kidnapping, and official email statements from Jomo Gbomo, the spokesperson of MEND, this book is of interest to sociologists, political scientists and peace and security studies scholars.
