Aggrieved Youths Dump Coffin At Exxon Mobil Gate
The youths stated their demands by blocking the gates of the company at its Housing Estate, Eket and the Airstrip entrance with coffins and other traditional warning emblems.
Speaking on behalf of the protesters, Joe Etukudo said it is time for the oil company to relocate to Akwa Ibom State keeping with presidential directives.
“Today is just a warning protest done in a very civilized manner, we will eventually shut down Mobil’s operation both onshore and offshore if, after 14 days, the company does not take us seriously,” Etukudo said.
The protesters also called on the company to stop being partial in its award of contracts and employment so that indigenes of the oil producing communities, and Akwa Ibom indigenes, in general, can become beneficiaries.
