The leadership of The Movement for Survival of the Ogoni People strongly condemns last Tuesday's attack on its president, Chief Legborsi Saro Pyagbara. The attack on our president is not only a violation of his fundamental rights but also a threat to the tenets and foundation of our struggle which is anchored on non-violence.
We consider this attack a sacrilege as it is not just an attack on our our respected president but a direct onslaught against the successor of Ken Saro-Wiwa and will not be tolerated.
Though the attack is currently a subject of Police investigation, it is condemnable, degenerative, ridiculous and unacceptable.
