We the undersigned, on behalf of the Communities surrounding the NNPC/SPDC joint venture facilities in Otumara area in the Escravos, Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State, use this medium to call on the Federal Government of Nigeria to cause the arrest and prosecution of Messrs Ayiri Emami, Mode Akoma, Isaac Botosan, Monday Tenumah, Smart Edema, Lucky Esun, Alex Eyengho, Lucky Ekpedure and others, over the unprovoked attack and destruction of facilities in the NNPC/SPDC Otumara Flow Station with a daily production of 20,000 barrels of crude oil.


We are aware that security agencies were informed of the plan to cause the unwarranted attack and disruption of Oil production in the Otumara flow station well over 30 days ago.


There are also military personnel stationed within the said facilities accommodated and provided with all necessaries for the protection of these facilities.

It is very clear that non of the security agents made any attempt or took steps to abort the illegal disruption intended to cause serious national economic crisis.


A few months ago the NNPC/SPDC joint venture complained of reduction in production and revenue in connection with oil theft. With this unprovoked attack and destruction of facilities, there is serious indication to declare force Majeure, for an unspecified duration, and the national economy
will suffer further loss of revenue.


By the PIA, our Communities that should benefit from the NNPC/ SPDC joint venture operations and production, will suffer as a result of the attack and destruction of the said facilities as our Communities will be made to bear the cost of rehabilitation of damaged facilities that we are not responsible for.


From our findings, those responsible for the unwarranted attack and destruction are not indigenes of the benefiting Communities within the area.


They declared to have the support and backing of the APC led Federal Government, to carry out their dastardly acts, hence the security agencies stationed within the Facilities appeared disabled.


We hereby call on the APC led Federal Government, to take urgent and decisive actions against the perpetrators, particularly where some leaders among them are known chieftains of the All Progressive Party (APC).

For the Otumara Communities.
