Ogoni struggle different from Biafran agitation, says MOSOP

Ogoni struggle different from Biafran agitation, says MOSOP

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People has said the Ogoni struggle is different from the agitations by the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra.

The Chairman of MOSOP in the United States of America, Dr Anderson Ngbobu, stated this in a statement obtained by our correspondent in Port Harcourt on Sunday.

Ngbobu, according to the statement signed by the factional President of MOSOP (Nigeria), Fegalo Nsuke, said unlike the Biafra movement, the Ogoni were not seeking an independent state from Nigeria, but were only demanding respect for their rights to self-determination in the country.

The statement explained that these were some of the issues canvassed at the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation General Assembly ongoing in the United States, where the Chairman of the Council for Ogoni Professionals in the United States, Anslem John-Miller, was scheduled to speak on Sunday.

Ngbobu described the Ogoni struggle as a simple demand for justice in Nigeria, which  did not represent an attempt to secede. He added that the Ogoni people were not Biafrans but represented a different and distinct ethnic nationality.

He said the UNPO must rise against the continued marginalisation of the Ogoni people in their own country, “especially the brutal repression of civil rights campaigners, which in some cases have led to their killings; a classic case is the murder of Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight others in November 1995.”
