In 1995, the writer Ken Saro-Wiwa and 8 other activists were executed by the Nigerian military regime. They'd been campaigning against oil pollution in their native Ogoniland, in the Niger Delta. Their deaths led to Nigeria's expulsion from the Commonwealth. Ledum Mitee was a fellow campaigner who was spared execution.
