The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has condemned Saturday’s murder of a 25-year-old boy, Melubari Lunyie, in Bua-Yeghe community of Ogoniland, describing it as a provocative action which could spark off an unimaginable crisis in the area.

MOSOP in a statement signed by the Chairman of the MOSOP Kingdom Coordinators Forum, Frank Jonah, urged the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Tunde Ogunshakin, to immediately commence investigation into the incident.

Mr. Lunyie, a native of Bua-Yeghe in Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State, was returning home from a burial vigil on Saturday night when he was shot and killed by unknown gunmen on the Bori-Port Harcourt Road.

“MOSOP strongly condemns this latest killing, describing it as very controversial, provocative and an attempt by enemies of peace to thrown Ogoniland into another round of civil crisis.

MOSOP therefore calls for immediate investigations into the killings,” said Frank Jonah in the statement.

“We are saddened by the fact that the body of the victim was taken to the police shortly after the incident and despite the information provided by the victim before his death, the police has been unable to make any arrest,” MOSOP said.

It called on the police authorities to check the trend in extra-judicial killings in parts of Ogoniland to avoid any confrontation over negligence and her seeming inability to protect the citizens.

MOSOP expressed worry and dissatisfaction over the performance of the police within the Ogoni area and called for greater responsibility on the part of the authorities to secure the life of citizens in Ogoniland.
