Véronique De Viguerie went to Nigeria for the first time with a journalist in February 2009 where they contacted Atteke Tom, leader of Mend. However, government troupes waged war on them, forcing them to leave the country even though they had already spent 4 weeks there. During a second stay lasting 3 weeks in July 2009, it was easier for them to travel and so they were finally able to infiltrate the illegal oil bunkering and refineries business. They were able to spend more time with the Mend soldiers in their camps, hidden in the mangroves.
