Leaders of Nigeria’s Ogoni people have threatened to disrupt the country’s oil industry if the government does not release a British artwork commemorating the 20th anniversary of the execution of the writer Ken Saro-Wiwa.

The memorial, in the form of a large bus, has been impounded by customs in Lagos for six weeks because it is considered politically inflammatory. A quote from the writer on the side of the bus accuses the oil companies of “practising genocide against the Ogoni”.
