The agreement, they claimed brought former governor, Chief James Ibori who contested against Chief Moses Kragha of All Peoples Party (APP), an Urhobo to power in 1999.

FRIGHTEN THE ACTIVIST OR PIN A CRIME ON HIM?

ISSUES
BY JOE OGBODU, JUST BACK FROM THE NETHERLANDS For 16 years, Sunny Ofehe, a Dutch-Nigerian environmental activist, had lived happily with his family in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

The Niger Delta question has been a subject of debate at the European Union Parliament, credit to him who made it possible for Shell to be summoned the first time to explain their role in the region.
