Aggrieved indigenes of Okoyitoru community in Gbaramatu kingdom, Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State, have handed down a 14-day ultimatum to the management of Chevron Nigeria Limited to commence the pilling and sand filling of their devastated community or face dire consequences.
The community in a letter to the Managing Director of Chevron, dated October 10, 2016 through their lawyer, Omes Ogedegbe, noted the ultimatum had become imperative as the demand for the project which the people considered very important to their well-being had been kept in view for too long by the company’s management despite repeated reminders.
According to the counsel, “The landmass of Okoyitoru is currently washing away and if same is left unattended, the community might go into extinction hence the only remedy is for an urgent piling and sand filing to be carried out for our client and same must be commenced within 14days from the date of your receipt of this letter, otherwise we shall be left with no other choice than to advise our client on all legal remedies available to them”
He further stated, “Our instruction upon mandate from our clients as eminently presented by Hon. Timi Oluba, chairman of Okoyitoru Development Council and other executives of our clients is to the effect that our client is an oil producing community within the “Makaraba field” in Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta State where your company has continually carried out the business of oil exploration activities since the year 1973”.
“If this is allowed to continue, it will surely create an unpleasant situation for everyone in the area as our clients are no longer afraid, but angry that having written several letters to press home their demand in line with modern civilization none of these have been given a favorable response,”Ogedegbe added.
