MOSOP berates FG, Shell over Ogoni pollution

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP, has said that the Nigerian government and the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited ought to be ashamed of their conduct in Ogoniland rather than speak of cleanup plans for Ogoni as an achievement.

MOSOP spokesperson Mr Fegalo Nsuke spoke in Bori, Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State during an interactive session with Ogoni youths.

He said: “It is absurd to celebrate a shameful conduct like we have seen with Shell in Ogoniland. Shell polluted the area and denied any wrongdoing, now a scientific report has unveiled the misconduct they hid for over 50 years.

“It is quite unfortunate that after over 50 years of polluting Ogoniland, our government and Shell do not understand that they should be apologising to the Ogoni people and hurry to restore the land.”
