28 Sep 2006 Fuelling the Niger Delta Crisis
Dakar/Brussels

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Less than a year before Nigeria holds its third national elections since the end of military rule in 1999, tensions are running high in the southern Niger Delta. A number of militant groups have begun allying themselves to local politicians with electoral aspirations. These groups and others continue to use legitimate grievances, such as poverty, environmental destruction and government corruption, to justify increasingly damaging attacks against government and oil industry targets. Removing the incentives for violence will require granting a degree of resource control to local communities. Engaging Delta groups in sustained, transparent dialogue also remains critical to finding a solution to the militant puzzle. Equally important, credible development efforts must be supported and stiff penalties for corruption imposed upon those who embezzle and squander funds.

23 Sep 2006 The Case for Asari Dokubo’s Release
An all-out war in the Niger Delta will not do the nation any good. Just as Nigerians were heaving a sigh of relief that good sense had finally triumphed in the corridors of power and that Armed Forces commanders have recognised that at the heart of the crisis in the Niger Delta is gross political marginalisation and can only be addressed through civic engagement, President Olusegun Obasanjo threw this kernel of wisdom out of the window and ordered renewed military crackdown in the region.
On 20th August a contingent of the Joint Military Task Force ambushed twenty Ijaw youths near Letugbene in the creeks of the western delta and shot them to death. The dead men had embarked on a peaceful mission, at the behest of Shell and Ijaw elders, to negotiate the release of a Shell worker who had been held hostage by elements alleged to have been members of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND). MEND is an armed militia, drawn largely from the Ijaw, and fighting for the Ijaw right to self-determination, a fair share of the oil receipts, and environmental justice in the region. The militia came into existence last February.
