Obinwannem News Breaking News: "Shell should go" Protest Hits Igweocha

Rivers- Members of Indigenous People of Biafra in conjunction with traditional rulers took to the streets on Sunday to protest against the deplorable states of roads within their vicinity demanding that the shell companies leave their land.

According to Family Writers reports, the unbearable suffering of the people is daily taking their toll in this part of Biafraland, as it has elicited massive condemnation by the people. This, however, triggered some traditional rulers and family members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Sunlight Estate zone 2, in Obigbo local government area in Rivers State (Igweocha), to stage a protest in frustration.

The protest as was reported, took place on Sunday 17th November 2019, as they pointedly decried the critical condition of Shell location road in Obigbo in Igweocha, Biafraland.

Recall that Shell Development Company is a Multi-National Oil company engaged in decades of oil exploration in the area, feeding fat at the misery of the seemingly helpless indigenous population.

Since 2015, this particular road has been in the state of disrepair despite the company’s chain of lucrative operations within the vicinity.

IPOB Sunlight Estate members who reiterated their support to the IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, stated that they remained absolutely no hope for the poor masses entrapped in this enclave called Nigeria.

“Here is the Shell location road. There are more than thirty (30) viable oil wells and in here with Shell steadily carrying out its activities unperturbed, yet there is no water and there is no good road for the people. The shell should go!”.

“For long, the Nigerian government has left the people here abandoned. We are seriously suffering. We are sick and tired of Nigeria. We want Biafra”, IPOB family members of the zone further cried out in protest.
