Ogoni Community to Protest Planned Conversion of Land By Govt

13 February 2012

The people of Luebe, Khana local government area of Rivers State, have said that no amount of intimidation would make them succumb to alleged plans by the state government to forcefully use their farmland for a banana plantation.

This is as they took to major streets of their community, weekend, to protest what they term the provocative and illegal acquisition of their land by the Governor Chibuike Amaechi administration.

The over 300 protesters, comprising youths, men and women, were mainly members of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP), even as they displayed placards, before converging at the market square where they were addressed by their leaders.
