The National Executive Committee of Ogoni Federation (OYF) has suspended four of its principal officers for allegedly engaging in activities that are inimical to the growth and development of Ogoniland in Rivers State.

The suspension of the officers is not unconnected with the allegation that they received money from the Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project (HYPREP) to frustrate OYF’s planned legal action against the project.

The NEC, in a statement issued in Port Harcourt yesterday gave the names of the suspended officers as Emmanuel Bie, Spokesman; Lekue Kingsley Lenee, Publicity Secretary; Kingsley Dimkpa, Financial Secretary and Mesua Mtormabari, Assistant Secretary.
