Ogoni

By Onozure Dania

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP, has called on women all over the world to stand with Ogoni women, who face continuous harassment from soldiers attached to the Nigerian affiliate of Royal Dutch Shell, Shell Petroleum Development Company, SPDC.

Coordinator of MOSOP in Europe, Lazarus Tamama made the call in a message to Ogoni women in Bori, headquarter of Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State, yesterday.

Lazarus Tamama urged Ogoni women to stand for their dignity and resist all attempts by Shell to further dehumanize them.

He  condemned Shell for laying pipelines in Ogoni land without the people’s consent and demanded a halt to the pipeline laying which he alleged had been used to sexually abuse Ogoni women.
