Storyline



©
Delta Force continues the story of the late Nigerian writer Ken Saro-Wiwa and the Ogoni people, and picks up where The Drilling Fields left off. It starts with a look back at the previous film and updates the story to include the unlawful arrest of Ken Saro-Wiwa and the subsequent implementation of Operation Restore in Ogoni land. This is a military campaign of terror waged against the Ogoni people in an attempt to restore oil production in their area. Delta Force also examines the massive international campaign organized to pressure Nigeria`s dictatorship into releasing Saro-Wiwa, who exposed corruption and injustice with his writings and his activism. Mr. Saro-Wiwa was nevertheless executed by the Nigerian government despite massive international appeals for clemency.  Much of the footage used in Delta Force was secretly shot by the Ogoni themselves.
