Battle ready: Delta women protest against NPDC camouflage-style (PHOTOS)

by Akan Ido

Women from Orogun Oil and Gas Communities in Ethiope East Local Government Area, Delta State recently trooped out to register their displeasure over what it referred to as marginalization by the Nigerian Petroleum Development Company (NPDC).

The protesters, who last month shut down the Erhoike Flow Station to register their opposition to the NPDC’s inability to appoint its indegenes into management or unskilled worker positions, have once again come out in their numbers adorned with leaves – camouflage style – and carrying placards with varying inscriptions.


According to Morris Idiowa, a community leader who spoke with the Vanguard during an earlier protest, NPDC was called upon to do more to develop the Orogun community where it conducts it business.

“In the whole of Orogun, there is no health care facility. Our market is terrible. Women, youths, community leaders are extremely marginalized. We have said to Shoreline, NPDC, if they cannot meet our demands, they should leave our land. They must renew all rents and leases; give us a percentage of production. We are ready to defend our rights, and resources with the last drop of our blood till the issues are resolved.
