, Index number: AFR 44/005/2000

Amnesty International is concerned by reports that residents of K-Dere village in Ogoniland, southeast Nigeria, arrested during a police raid on their village on 11 April, have been ill-treated in detention. The names of those arrested are: Pastor Monday Gbonab, Saturday Namon, Sunday Namon, Stephen Oomii, Friday Tenalo, Pastor Deebari Zortee, Lucky Zorgbaa and Ledum Mitee. The reports indicate that Pastor Deebari Zortee, of the Apostolic Church, was beaten following arrest, that some of those detained with him are in poor health and that others wounded by police at the time of arrest have been denied medical care in detention.
