The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) wishes to express its displeasure at the recent attacks and wanton destruction of lives and properties in Kporghor, Tai local government Area by the neighboring Wakama community in Ogu-Bolo local government area.
We are saddened that despite repeated notifications to the government to take adequate steps to protect the people of Kporghor and other communities which have come under attack from their neighbors, the government appear to have been insensitive to this issue and failing in its responsibility to protect the lives of its citizens.
At the time of this release, the people of Kporghor have been driven out of their homes. Sven persons have been confirmed dead and all homes in the community including schools and worship centers have been destroyed.
MOSOP urges the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and the security agencies to take urgent steps to restore normalcy in these Ogoni communities including Kporghor in Tai Local Government Area, Ekporo in Eleme Local Government Area and to ensure the security of other Ogoni communities which have come under attack from their neighbors.
