The Ogoni Community Development Network has expressed strong condemnation of what it called the brutal molestation of erstwhile President of the Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People (MOSOP), Legborsi Saro Pyagbara, “in an attempt to forcefully take over his residence in Port Harcourt.”
“We strongly condemn this act as it negates the nonviolent orientation of MOSOP,” the Network said in a statement issued recently in Green River, Wyoming U.S.A.
According to the statement signed by the group’s President Johnson Kuele, “The physical brutality on erstwhile president of MOSOP, Legborsi Pyagbara, was done by a group we understand is claiming the presidency of MOSOP and led by Bari-ala Kpalap. The beating up of Pyagbara by the group is brutish and humiliating and not deserving of the person of Pyagbara.
“We understand that Pyagbara is currently acting lawlessly, laying claim to the presidency of MOSOP which no longer belongs to him following the expiration of his tenure in December 2018, however we do not think that beating him up as was done by the Kpalap’s thugs is the right thing to do.”
