The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has expressed outrage and condemn in strong terms the reported abduction of yet another Ogoni, less than two weeks of the kidnap and release of the endowed Ogoni journalist, Donu Kogbara. The 25-year old son of the Vice Chancellor of the University of Port Harcourt, Mr. Ejira Lale was reportedly abducted by unidentified, gunmen at their family home in Agbeta-Ebubu community in Eleme Local Government Area at about 8pm yesterday (15/9/2015).

The apex organisation of the Ogoni people, MOSOP, has vehemently condemned accusations by Shell that Ogoni is responsible for why the Ogoni clean-up exercise has not been implemented. We deny this unprovoked allegation. MOSOP is however convinced that the onslaught of deliberate falsehood against the Ogoni people has deeper, mischievous intent far from mere provoking public sentiment against our citizens.

Members of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) have welcomed the unconditional release of the Ogoni, Donu Kogbara by her abductors after thirteen (13) days of captivity. It happily thanked the Most High God for His divine intervention. MOSOP similarly commended the press, security agencies and other well-meaning citizens whose prayers and relentless efforts helped in her regaining freedom.

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has uncovered an evil plot by internal and external politicians and their cronies to politicize the planned Ogoni environmental remediation and restoration process to advance some parochial political and economic agenda capable of thwarting the success of the exercise.  MOSOP has thus warned these saboteurs to steer clear of the implementation arrangements as any further attempt at undermining the process would be viewed as affront against the collective interest of the Ogoni people and will be decisively resisted.

In response to the reportedly ill-informed and unwarranted demonstration by a handful of people at Akpajo junction on the East/West road, Eleme local government area, today (24/8/15), the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has warned the Ogoni people and the general public to ignore the group, which have been manipulated to attempt drawing Ogoni aback.
