Alleged Obstruction of Operation: Matrix Energy drags Warri Chief to court
Chief Robinson Oritsemuminogho Ariyo

A major Tank firm Owner and operator, MATRIX ENERGY LIMITED has dragged Warri based lawyer and human rights activist, Chief Robinson Oritsemuminogho Ariyo before the Federal High Court in Warri over allegations that the human rights lawyer is obstructing the operation of the company in its location in Ifie-Kporo, Warri South Local Government Area of Delta Sate of Nigeria.

 

The suit whose particulars are NO: FHC/WR/CS/ 102 /2017 is between the said company as Plaintiff and Chief Robinson Ariyo as Defendant and was commenced by a Writ of Summons which has since been served on the Defendant.

 

When contacted, Chief Ariyo confirmed and disclosed that he has already filed his defence in preparedness to redress the defamation of his character by the Plaintiff in the case.

 

The Plaintiff is by its suit challenging the right of the Defendant to question its operation  and it also seeks to restrain the Defendant from disrupting its operations.

 

The Plaintiff also alleged that the Defendant has been disrupting its operation with the aid of thugs.

 

Chief Ariyo however contended: “the said suit is calculated to unjustifiably defame my hard earned character and I am prepared, able and very willing to protect myself with the legal tools available to me in the circumstances”

 

It would be recalled that a couple of weeks ago some residents of the cluster of communities in the area of operation of the company who are clients to Chief Ariyo had caused a pre-action to be issued and served on the Federal Government Agencies in charge of the supervision of the operations of tank farms in the area and over what they described as breach of safety guidelines and regulations.

 

The company by the said suit is accusing Chief Ariyo Ariyo of threatening its operations in an illegal manner.
