This book is a revelation. The book of revelation, if you like. It deals crucially with the life of a dignified man who was one of the most honest, I have ever known. The man who saved Nigeria from disintegration in 1967 but was unfortunately murdered in cold-blood by Shell and the same government on November 10, 1995. Ken Saro-Wiwa (1941-1995)was an honest negotiator who did not loss a fight but could yield if genuine dialogue was put in place for mutual agreement to be reached bilaterally. He was a man of peace, of ideas, one of the bravest. Readers the world over, Ogoni and those who played the different roles in the hanging of Ken, would see my Hero resurface. And, this is because he lives. Shell and the Federal Government had lured, paid, and made promises to some Ogonis who were counseled in a mock court(before his arraignment at the Justice Ibrahim Auta´s Military tribunal) to testify falsely in oral and written forms against him and 8 others. They did this so that having been killed for no crime but the consciousness he gave his suffering people, the Ogoni oil wealth and natural gas would be extracted unhindered and Niger Delta would learn a bitter lesson from it and would not venture to speak against the nonchalant attitudes of Shell oil and the Nigerian Government. However, they misfired. Though the messenger was taken away by Corporate and State Murder, the message lives on, therefore Ken Saro-Wiwa lives.
