I'm learning to cook my own food I think I'm beginning to LIKE it if you can believe me'; media coverage, noting 'I had my aged parents (Dad, 90, mum 73) go to newspaper offices to embarrass the authorities a bit. Very mean of me, isn't it'; concerns for the welfare of his family and the Ogoni people, stating 'So long as I am fighting Shell, so long will I suffer. But that is the only way the Ogoni will get out of their bind'; and the film Drilling Fields.
