The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSSOP) has condemned the Army invasion of Yeghe community on Sunday, September 18, 2016.

According to MOSSOP, the continued invasion of the community shows that the Army has a hidden agenda.

The group’s Publicity Secretary, Mr. Fegalo Nsuk said a lot of families have been left in tears and sorrow following the alleged invasion.

Nsuk also said “MOSOP is appalled and vehemently condemns in the strongest terms Sunday’s raid on Yeghe, an Ogoni community in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State.

“This incessant military invasion of Ogoni communities particularly Yeghe portrays sinister motives, especially when considered against the backdrop that the area was experiencing significant peace.

“We recall that in February and March this year, similar raids were carried out on Yeghe and neighboring communities in which over 28 persons were killed, scores were maimed, raped and properties wantonly destroyed.

“In the raid of September 18, two persons were feared killed, including Mr. John Sorbarikor Gbarazia and his wife, Gloria.

“MOSOP does not find any justification in the unabated invasions and killings of Ogonis by government forces and call for a probe into this latest military attack.”

Meanwhile, the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate (NDGJM) has described the ongoing military training in the creeks, codenamed - Operation Crocodile Smile as a scam.
