Every society has certain ways of regulating the behaviour and actions of its people. In the close-knit of Ogoni indigenous society, where life flowed along traditional lines, virtue is rewarded and punishments apportioned to those who violates traditional norms and values. This paper is motivated by the alarming rate of criminal activities in Nigeria, which is a sharp contrast to the pre-modern era when traditional methods and measures were in used. Lamentably, the strong policies and sophisticated weapons used by government established agencies and institutions as well as the anti-corruption crusade by several government regimes have been turn into occasional inter-elites struggles and thus have yielded little or no result. Using the descriptive methods, the paper focuses on the Ogoni anti-corruption structure-family and religious sanctions, oath-taking and social sanctions-as well as their relevance to the Nigerian milieu. The paper therefore advocates for the adoption of the Ogoni anti-corruption measures in order to achieve a crime/corruption-free society.
