The Secretary-General of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP), Anthony Porole, has been abducted by unknown gunmen.
According to a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Sunny Zorvah, on Saturday, Mr Porole was kidnapped around 8.30 p.m. on Friday in his compound at Biara-Ogoni hometown in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State, with the criminals shooting sporadically before escaping with him to an unknown destination.
Zorvah said that members of the umbrella organisation of Ogoni people were saddened over the kidnap, while calling for the scribe’s immediate and unconditional release unhurt.
‘MOSOP also calls on the security agencies to be on the trail of the kidnappers and ensure their immediate arrest.
“It is callous and undeserving that a man who has committed his life in serving his people will be treated in this manner.
“Enough is enough of this criminal, uncivilised, barbaric and retrogressive act,” he said.
