Ken Saro-Wiwa

Ken Saro-Wiwa

We remember!

A resounding voice of liberty and justice which echoed from the Niger Delta 23 years ago.

Ken Saro-Wiwa remain one of those icons whose ultimate sacrifice paved way for the civil society we enjoy in Nigeria today.

However, twenty three (23) years after his execution, oil companies around the region are still degrading Ogoniland and other oil producing communities; the people's means of livelihood in those communities has suffered seriously without proper compensation.

So much politics has been played with the struggle, billionaires have been made from the Niger Delta people's plight, but Ken Saro-Wiwa's dream of getting justice for the affected oil producing communities still remained unfulfilled.

Ken Saro-Wiwa was executed alongside eight other environmental activists by Abacha's government on November 10, 1995.
