Ogoni people are still counting their losses some 27 years after the killing of some indigenous people of Bodo, Gokana Local Government Area during the 21st May Massacre 1994 otherwise known as Ogoni 4.
Recall that Chief EDWARD KOBANI, Chief ALBERT BADEY and two others were reportedly lynched in Ogoniland nearly three decades ago.
To this end, a candlelight procession was held over the weekend as a remembrance for the four fallen men who their people described as heroes.
The Convener of the candlelight procession, KINGSLEY ADIVIN, spoke to our correspondent KINGSLEY VIGAAGE, on the memorial.
Similarly, a traditional ruler DUMBARI KPAKOL said it was a significant day to Ogoni people.
In a remark, a resident of Bodo, SYLVESTER VIDII, described the late Gokana heroes as champions of development in their time.
