Mosop Will Fight Shell Despite $15.5 Million Settlement by Edoji: 6:58pm On Jun 09, 2009
"We welcome the $15.5 million compensation for the illegal killings of Ken Saro-Wiwa and the other eight Ogoni leaders, But Shell has to address the issue of environmental pollution, neglect and degradation in Ogoniland. Shell has inflicted much sufferings on the Ogoni people through its operations. As farmers and fishermen we have been deprived of our means of livelihood through the pollution of our lands. This is blood money"

lol. Blood money consumed by ALL Nigerians.
Most people here have their salaries paid from proceeds from Nigeria's oil revenues. We all consume the so-called blood money.

I wonder when you will learn to shut the hell up on issues such as this. If no be blood money then wetin e be? Abi because you work for oil coy, you just close eye dey collect?

As I have said on the other thread, it is good that the families of the MOSSOP 8 have been recompensed for the slaughter of their sons. Now, I want to see the families of the hundreds of Ogoni villagers who were slaughtered in 1993 by the Nigerian Army, using Chevron gunboats and helicopters provided by Shell also recompensed. How can a foreign coy sponsor (or at the very least condone) the slaughter of Nigerian citizens. This is our Nigeria! Not some foreigners plaything.
