1st December, 2015.
Enough Is Enough, No Oil Bench Mark In Nigeria Any More Again:
Operation Shut Down Niger Delta Region
Our Resolve To Shut Down Niger Delta Oil And Gas Operations Over The
Federal Government Refusal In Connivance With Chevron By Not Paying
Compensation To The Affected People For Damages Suffered As A Result
Of Gas Explosion, Oil Spill And Fire Outbreak
The affected Communities in Bayelsa, Rivers, Delta, Akwa Ibom and
Cross River States on gas explosion, oil spill and fire outbreak at
K.S. Endeavor Rig that despite the long patience and endurance,
Federal Government and Chevron Nigeria Limited have failed to pay
compensation since 16th January, 2012.
Chevron Nigeria Limited including the Federal Government that always
takes pleasure and interest to answer Niger Delta region that engages
them in confrontation and restiveness, which we the claimants in our
thousands have prepared for now, even though it will cause several
death on both side were oil exploration and exploitation activities is
going to be halted.
Because of insurgency in the North East more attention is given to
them for now, and this is what is going to happen in the Niger Delta
region in the next two (2) weeks, if we face our enemies’ One on One
as every Nigerians knows the people of the soil…
Consequently, Chevron’s deliberate and ignoble attitude towards our
parents in respect of the above mentioned compensations is a clear
pointer to, for in sighting restiveness or confrontation again.
President’s several travels abroad to woe investors will not yield
positive result without addressing this issue within the next two (2)
Our operations are going to berth at Atlas Cove in Lagos State again
etc. We are officially informing federal government so as to prepare
its mind towards it. As they have failed to direct Chevron, NNPC and
NOSDRA about the peoples suffering as a result of the gas explosion,
which they have connived with Chevron to kill the dream and aspiration
of the Niger Delta people.
Since they have sowed a bad seed in Niger Delta region we are Shutting
Down all Chevron platforms and other oil fields including destroying
of pipelines to demand an apology for what they have done to the
people of Niger Delta with immediate payment of claims to the
downtrodden people who have no hope again in life.
We’ll also go after those politicians that have mortgaged our future
that needs to die for the region to move forward. What happened in
Ghana years back is going to take place in the region.
Meanwhile, we the onshore communities have becoming more ill and
death, the fishes in the nearby waters that were our livelihood died.
Presently most communities ultimately, had to abandon their villages’
lives and livelihoods. Chevron and other oil companies’ political
donations are damaging Niger Delta region.
Nigerian government and Chevron are making things difficult for our
old parents at home to get what rightfully belongs to them, and have
made it difficult for our parents to discharge their fishing
activities as an obligation to feed themselves and their dependants.
Many crises are being sponsored by oil companies including Chevron
Chevron dubious activity with government collaborators makes it
impossible for our parents fishing rights in the region. Chevron
non-payment of our parents’ claims with any moment from now shall
ignite fresh crisis which your government cannot control in the next
two (2) week.
Nigerian officials in Chevron for reasons of parochial interests had
over the years connived with few individuals and government agents to
short-change a majority of inhabitants of beneficiary people in the
Niger Delta region.
Note: We are only demanding of our right as contain in the Nigerian
Constitution, and anything beyond that we will be setting fire on
Chevron platforms and stop every other Oil operations in the Niger
Delta Region. WE’LL DO IT. DON’T DOUBT US AND NIGERIANS ARE GOING TO
SEE IT SOON.
We will be compel to use our 10 reload-able Rockets Propelled Grenade
(RPGS) Multiple Launchers including M319 Individual Grenade Launcher,
Caliber 40mm that are ready for operations. We’ll bring down any
Helicopter either in military colour or whatever. Two week from now,
fly No Helicopter in the region. No guerrilla warfare but face to
face. We are watching when the gods (Deity) will tell us to advance,
and remember that Ijaw man looses NO battle.
Please Nigerian soldiers should not be causality again in the region
because we will not spear any ant that will be sighted in course of
our shutting down exercise of oil installations and pipelines. In any
attempt to retaliate by the Joint Task Force (JTF) on us, we have no
option but our struggle for legitimacy is consistent and the rest will
be a history…
We have resolved to keep on eye the date we had in mind as is going to
be directed by the Izon War (deity) god and let us see what the
government will use to run her economy as this will going to be, “To
Your Tent Oh Israel”. We will attack by exploding any Crude oil
pipeline, new product Pipeline, Pump Stations, Distribution Depots,
Refinery Depot all the 22 Petroleum storage depots, the 4 Refineries,
the Offshore Terminals at Bonny and Escravos, and the Jetties at Atlas
Cove, Calabar, Okrika and Warri that no oil and gas will passes
through the 4315 kilometres of multi-product pipelines and 666
kilometres of crude oil pipelines, oil manifolds and gas pipelines as
retaliation. We shall tell Nigerian government that we owns and knows
all crude oil and gas pipelines in the country.
Despite the oil-inspired provocations are committed to a peaceful
co-existence with the oil companies, our Lawyers and Claim Agents
peaceful demand on several occasion has been ignored. The only
recognized body of the FORUM OF CLAIM AGENTS/ATTORNEYS FOR CHEVRON GAS
EXPLOSION AT KOLUAMA IN BAYELSA STATE who are to make and receive for
our parents has been ignored and becomes helpless since 2012.
When the conventional method is failed in any dialogue, then you apply
the unconventional method to press home for your demand. This is our
time to notify them openly. We want our parent’s compensation so that
they can join that column of humanity that is willing to do justice.
Oil Companies sworn to oppression is not fit to survive in Niger Delta
region and this will stop forthwith.
NNPC several DRONES to do surveillance activities on the pipelines and
other gas installations will disappoint government and regrets
spending such monies on them, as our boys scatters across the region
when we network the vandalization commence.
Let Nigerians should know that they should not think of any Oil Bench
Mark to run her economy any more rather should go into Agriculture to
run the economy, as we are going to cripple all oil and gas sectors.
This is our word. No more going back until it is accomplished.
Egberifaoo… Haa… Izons! Hmmm!!!
