[BREAKING] Gbaramatu youths evacuate Chevron, Itsekiri from Abiteye, Utonana and Makaraba flowstations

By Ebi Perekeme 

Youths of Ijaw extraction under the banner of Gbaramatu Youths Council(GYC) have given Chevron Nigeria Limited(CNL) a 24 hour notice to stop operations and evacuate all their staff at their flowstations in Abiteye, Utonana and Makaraba or else have themselves to blame.

The youths are taking the action because of CNL’s reluctance to carry out JIV test which was one of the points of reconciliation that was agreed upon between the Ijaw youths and the management of CNL.

Equally given a quit notice are Itsekiri people who are accused of conniving with CNL to frustrate the peace process that the Ijaw youths agreed upon.

The Itsekiris were told to pack out of the locality under 24 hours to avoid very dire consequences.
