Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People, MOSOP, has alerted on the resurgence of violence in most Ogoni communities, as eight people died in the latest attack on Sunday.
President of MOSOP, Legborsi Pyagbara, in an issued statement on Sunday night in Port Harcourt, said enemies of the area were perpetrating the violence.
He noted that MOSOP and other stakeholders have been meeting to restore peace to the area and wondered why certain interest groups were bent on thwarting the peace initiatives with their continued attacks on lives and properties in the area.
Pyagbara lamented that those who did not want peace in Ogoni-land, were trying their best to bring the area under siege. According to him, six of the victims are from Opouko community and two from Luumene area of the LGA.
He added that the residence of the Khana Council Chairman, Mr. Lateh Loolooh and the palace of the Gbenemene Banghan, Chief Suanu Baridam, were burnt down during the attack.
The MOSOP president, therefore, urged relevant authorities to uncover those behind the dastardly acts.
