Angry indigenes of Diebiri and Batan communities have shut down a flow station in OML 42, operated by the Nigeria Petroleum Development Company, NPDC, a subsidiary of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, (NNPC) over recent appointments made by the Delta State government.

Both communities are in Warri South West L.G.A.

The Nation gathered that the protesters shut down the flow station on Friday over Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s appointment into the board of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC.

The protesters allegedly accused Deputy Governor, Kingsley Otuaro of highjacking DESOPADEC’s appointment slot for his cronies in Gbaramatu Kingdom in disregard to production quantum.

It was learnt that the people of Diebiri Kingdom claims it is their turn to produce the next member representing Ijaw nation in the state interventionist oil commission.

Details shortly…..
