Niger Delta Communities Raise Alarm over Planned Military Invasion

Posted on by admin

Communities in  Gbaramatu kingdom of Warri South-west Local Government Area of Delta State have cried out over alleged planned invasion of their communities by military men searching for illegal bunkering activities in the area.
The communities said the alleged planned military invasion  was coming under the guise of searching for illegal bunkering activities in flow stations at Abiteye in Benikrukru, Jones Creek and Utonna in Kokodiagbene, as well as Makaraba flowstation communities.
The communities, have, therefore,  appealed to security agencies to go after the various camps where illegal oil activities are being carried out, as none of the communities in Gbaramatu kingdom is involved in illegal oil bunkering activities because the kingdom is host to oil and gas flow stations.
oil facilities“There are military check points few meters away from illegal oil bunkering camps, therefore, if the security agencies want to apprehend those involved in illegal oil bunkering, they should go after their men on ground whose check points are not far away from the camps, instead of innocent community people”Spokesman of the communities, Sheriff Mulade, said the news about the planned military invasion this weekend has created tension among the residents of the aforementioned communities who now live in fear, while some are relocating to nearby communities for safety.
The people have therefore appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari and the military personnel to jettison the alleged plan to invade Gbaramatu communities, and instead go after the illegal bunkers in the creeks.
They also strongly appealed to security agencies to kindly apply professionalism in carrying out their assignment in order not to create further tension and hardship in the already deprived, neglected and marginalized riverside people of Gbaramatu kingdom.
