“Soldiers Killed Our People” — Ogoni Women Weep Before House Of Assembly Panel. Photos

A massive crowd turned out yesterday at the Rivers State House of Assembly to witness the inaugural sitting of the House of Representatives’ Committee on Army were shocked over testimonies that soldiers were responsible for the killings in Ogoniland.

Family members of the bereaved and other witnesses told the panel on Monday how a group of soldiers invaded Yeghe in Gokana Local Government Area and neighbouring communities in Khana LGA, killing innocent people.

The bereaved family members from Ogoniland (mostly women) cried uncontrollably before the panel members took their time to console them.
