The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People has condemned in strong terms the unjustified, gruesome murder of an Ogoni, Mr. David Legbara by police sergeant James Imhalu and demanded his immediate prosecution and payment of adequate compensation from the police to the family of the deceased. MOSOP has also warned that should nothing be done within fourteen (14) days, the Ogoni people would have no choice than to peacefully and non-violently protest the heinous killing.

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has welcomed and congratulated the President Muhammadu Buhari led Federal Government of Nigeria for approving the setting up of governing structures to facilitate the implementation of recommendations of the UNEP report on Ogoniland. Coming at a time when there have been growing skepticism driven by experiences of untoward politicisation of implementation of the report by the immediate past administration, the approval demonstrates a comforting shift from rhetoric to matching words with action; expressed commitment and rebuilt and strengthens the confidence of our people in the government.
