Tension In Ugborodo And Environs As INYC Gives 72-Hrs Ultimatum Against Chevron Investigation
There are palpable tension in the oil city of Warri and the operational headquarters of American Oil Giant Chevron Nigeria Limited in Warri South and in Ugborodo Warri South-West Local government areas of Delta State.
It would recall that the Itsekiri National Youth Council (INYC) the apex Itsekiri Youth body Worldwide had handed down a 72-hour against Chevron Nigeria on Friday May 10, 2019 for its adamant and neglect of its host communities of Ugnorodo and others over lack of employment, lack of portable water, lack of electricity as well as create enabling contract opportunities for its host community.
It was however gathered that Chevron only met with host communities of Ugborodo weekend after almost a week of protest by the community, the protest which have crippled its operations for the past week.
When our correspondent visited Ugborodo community women, youth and other community indigenes were seen sleeping occupying Chevron main entrance first corner at Ugborodo granding all business activities to a halt .
As it stands no one knows the INYC next line of action if government and Chevron management don’t intervene to avert the danger looming ahead.
