Saro-Wiwa, head of the opposing faction, had been denied entry to Ogoniland on the day of the murders, but was then detained in connection with the killings.

The small tent, one of hundreds crammed onto a muddy plain in a refugee camp in Benin, West Africa, has no running water, no bathroom and mats on the dirt floor that serve as beds. Let me admit that we were incapable of violent self-defense, so we dared, but without recourse to violence. Meetings are arranged between Andoni and Ogoni leaders and government representatives.

      Some men from the Gwara community of Khana intervened, leading to a fight which left one of their number dead and several injured. These characteristics show that nature is very important for the Ogoni people. Seafood is still being scrounged from the polluted waters and community people still process their foods in the crude-coated creeks. The Ogoni practice animism and worship the river as a god. By mid-June, 30 villages had been completely destroyed, people had been detained, and at least 40 had been killed.
