We Do Not Want Violence, Leave Our Lands – Oil Producing Communities to Militants

Oil bearing communities in Delta State have called on militants in the Niger Delta region to cease further hostilities on oil facilities or have them to contend with.
They appealed to the militants to embrace the proposed dialogue with Federal Government in the interest of the people of the region who are al­ready impoverished by continued degradation of the environment.
Chairman of OML 30 Community Development Board, Hon Morris Idiovwa stated this on behalf of oil communities at a press conference Thursday in Ughelli, Delta State, stressing that they were worried by the escalating militancy in the region.
They also denounced the claims that Urhobo ethnic nationality was behind the resurgence of the Niger Delta Greenland Justice Mandate which has claimed responsibility for attacks on oil facilities in the upland of the region.
Idiovwa stated that, “Urhobo nation has been patient and peaceful and we believe that we are drawing closer to getting our dues from the Ni­gerian union, therefore, we want to call on all our youths not to give in to the lure and invitation to violence.
“The federal government has been less than fair to our region, unfair to the extent that all the reactions so far coming out are justifiable. There are and have been issues and practices that should provoke any human to almost irrational anger; the way oil blocks ownerships are schemed is vexing.
