Nigeria Monday lost over 80,000 barrels of crude as protesting women and youths shut down two major Flow Stations in Erhoike and Olomoro, insisting that they would not discuss review of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the operator of the flow stations through a non governmental organization or any third party, Vanguard reports.
As early as 9am Monday the protesting women took over the main gate leading to the flow stations, chanting solidarity songs. They also accused the operator of the flow stations of allegedly failing to implement portions of the MoU it went into with the communities when it took over operation of the flow stations.
“We want the company, Heritage Energy to discuss with our community. No negotiation with any third party. We have taken a joint resolution as the 111 host communities to OML 30 that the operators of the oil fields in the area meet with us within 7 days” Secretary of Cluster 4 Mr Andy Adese said in Erhoike flow station.
Chief EKokobe Obaro, Chairman CDC Oleh who spoke to newsmen at Olomoro flow station also called for addition of the name Oleh in the flow station, adding that operators of the oil field should discuss directly with the communities under OML 30.
