oil and gas - November 22, 2021

Host communities of oil well, Obiavu-5 (OB5), operated by the Nigeria Agip Oil Company, (NAOC), in Omoku, Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni Local Government Area of Rivers State, are now living in fear following attack on the company’s facility by suspected militant group.
THISDAY gathered that a new militant group in the Niger Delta region under the aegis of Bayan-Men blew up the said facility on Tuesday night.

It was further learned that the militants action was as a result of the alleged failure of the oil firm to deal directly with their host communities.

Leader of the Bayan-Men group who gave his name simply as “General” in Port Harcourt yesterday noted that the action was due to the refusal of the firm to allow the people benefit from their operation in the area, adding that the firm was neck deep in divide and rule.
