Delta Community Women Protest Alleged Neglect by Oil Firm
Communities of cluster 1, in Oil Mining Lease OML 30, have threatened to shut down oil installations in Afiesere community of Ughelli North local government area of Delta state, over failures of the oil firm operating in the area to honour the GMoU agreement.
In a peaceful protest, women of the nine communities of the cluster have issued an ultimatum to Heritage Energy Oil Service Limited, to honour the GMoU agreement or stop drilling the oil in their land.
Displaying leaf branches while dancing and singing solidarity songs, the women threatened not to relent until their demands are met.
Addressing newsmen, the President General of the community said, the communities demands are very important in regard to the agreement entered with the oil multinational.
