Ken Saro-Wiwa, the Delta, Oil and Ogonis


These videos are condensed videos from an excellent 1995 Channel 4 documentary (called “Delta Force”) on the Ogoni oil crisis. It aired a few days after Saro-Wiwa was executed. These videos cover the conflict over oil and natural resources between big oil companies, the Ogonis and the then ruthless military government in Nigeria. The videos also feature footage from the Civil Disturbances Special Tribunal which sentenced Saro-Wiwa to death.
