Ogoni (folk)

Ogoni-folket er et av mange folk som bor i Niger-deltaet sørøst i Nigeria. I likhet med ijawene, en annen etnisk gruppe på Niger-deltaet, har ogoniene store miljømessige problemer med oljeindustrien.[trenger referanse] Det bor omtrent fem millioner ogonier på et område på omkring 1050 kvadratkilometer.[trenger referanse] Dette området er deres historiske hjemland og blir ofte omtalt som «Ogoni-land».

Ogoni-folket fikk mye internasjonal oppmerksomhet etter massive protester mot diverse oljeselskaper.[trenger referanse]
