Itsekiri Host Communities; Ifiekpo, Uwakeno, Omadino, Ewekwara, Jaluwa Efueye, Aja Osolo and Obodo in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State, under the aegis of OML 15 Consultative Forum, have issued quit notice to Con Oil Nigeria Plc, Fresh Angle International can report.

Indigenes of the host communities, began a protest yesterday, Wednesday June 9 at Con Oil Obodo Field, at the end of a 14-day ultimatum handed down the company: “To respect the proclamations by we, Landlord Communities, Palace of the Olu of Warri and the Delta State Government, to recognize and deal with the Comrade Monday Agbeyi led executive of the OML 150 Communities’ Consultative Forum or should vacate our land”. 

Our Senior Correspondent reports that the protesters who said they: “Are tired of the disrespectful disposition of Con Oil Nigeria Plc for Constituted Authorities and of course left with no other option than to issue quit notice to the Company”, urged the management of Con Oil to, “respect Constituted Authorities and start dealing with us (the Comrade Monday Agbeyi led executive) to pave way for the development of our communities”.

They vowed: “There is no going back in this resolve, but we must put the records straight that we don't have problem with the Federal Government of Nigeria, under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari, as we are peace loving people ready to partner with the Delta State Government and Federal Government of Nigeria, to improve the living stand of our people.

“We want to assure Con Oil Nigeria Plc and the Law Enforcement Agencies, that there shall be no destruction of properties during the period of this peaceful protest as all the peaceful protesters are thoroughly monitored”.

The protesters warned that they should not be provoked by the Management of Con Oil vis-a-vis Law Enforcement Agents, to avoid a breakdown of law and order.

“We detest and would no longer accept or tolerate the move by Con Oil to sabotage the development stride and initiatives of the Monday Agbeyi led executive, by sponsoring and working with some disgruntled individuals, posing as the executive members representing OML 150 hosts communities”, they declared.
