The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has accused the Federal Government of deliberately creating the insecurity situation in Ogoniland to cause crisis for its planned oil resumption in the region.
President of MOSOP, Fegalo Nsuke, in a statement, said that the situation was not out of control yet, but due to government’s failure to provide the needed logistics, it has become security problem in the area. “We blame the Federal Government for the current situation for not providing patrol vans for the police at Divisional Headquarters in Bori Local Council to curb insecurity in Ogoniland,” he said.
He said the action of government in neglecting the police in Ogoniland over a long period was a calculated attempt to create the present situation where their agents will call for military. Nsuke, therefore, appealed to government not to allow things to deteriorate so as to pave way for repression of civil activists calling for justice in Ogoni and consequently enhance oil resumption in Ogoniland.
