MOSOP Alleges Shell, Military Repression In Ogoni

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) condemned an alleged violation of the rights of the Ogoni people by Nigerian soldiers attached to the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited (SPDC).

According to the MOSOP spokesman, Fegalo Nsuke: “We are deeply saddened that the repression of our people continue unabated as soldiers attached to SPDC continue to harass our women and farmers and prevent them from accessing their farmlands, destroying crops and forcefully lay pipelines through Ogoni farms.

“It is disheartening that despite the precarious conditions of the Ogoni people consequent upon the massive pollution of farmlands, streams and rivers, Shell continues to inflict monumental pains on our people by preventing them from their farms”.

He also alleged that the activities of Shell constitutes real danger to the security and rights of Ogoni people, especially women who have reported harassment by Nigerian soldiers attached to SPDC.

“The prevention of peasant farmers from their farms portends serious threat to food supplies to families who rely on subsistence farming for survival”, while calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to put an end to the alleged repression in Ogoniland and its attendant military occupation of Ogoni farmlands.
