The Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People (MOSOP) has praised Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike for imposing curfew at the state’s borders, to curb insecurity.
MOSOP President Prince Biira said in a statement on Wednesday by the group’s Publicity Secretary, Young Nkpah that Ogoni indigenes should be vigilant.
He said they should ensure that the borders leading to the area are protected, to avoid insecurity.
Governor Wike on Tuesday imposed restriction of movements at the borders from 8pm till 6am, beginning from April 28, to check attacks and killings of security personnel.
The statement said: “We join well-meaning Nigerians in condemning the attacks and killings of security personnel on lawful duties.

“We also wish to convey our heartfelt condolences to the families of the fallen heroes and pray the Almighty God to grant them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
“While we laud the Rivers State Government for the measure, there is no doubt that the curfew will inflict challenging circumstances on the people, as the state’s economy will be affected.”
