PORT HARCOURT— MOVEMENT for the Survival of Ogoni, MOSOP, has called on the Police and other federal agencies to ensure that those found wanting in the alleged attack on Senator Magnus Abe, were prosecuted.
A statement by the United State’s chapter of the apex Ogoni body, signed by the President, Dumka Baabel and others, condemned the alleged attack, saying that the National Assembly should also insist that a thorough investigation be carried out by relevant security agencies on the issue.
MOSOP USA said: “We join MOSOP Nigeria, all well-meaning Ogoni people and supporters of justice and equity to condemn the reported assassination attempt on our illustrious son, Senator Abe, the Senator representing Rivers South-East senatorial district on Sunday.
“As a people that have sacrificed so much in blood and treasure for the unity and viability of Nigeria, such incidence evokes in us bitter memories of the not too distant past. We will no longer watch helplessly as mayhem is unleashed on us. We will respond by any means necessary.
“It is, therefore, in an overwhelming condition of anxiety and palpitation that MOSOP USA hereby, calls on the Government of Nigeria, the Inspector General of Police, and all relevant agencies to conduct a full scale investigation into the incident and to ensure that the perpetrators are prosecuted.”
