Akwa Ibom militants

Militants under the aegis of UNYEKISONG Akwa Ibom have asked all multinational oil companies to vacate the state due to what they described as ‘unwholesome practices and atrocities.’

The group gave the vacation order in a statement issued by its leader and deputy, ‘General’ Dede Udofia and ‘Major’ Ibanga Ekang in Uyo yesterday.

They said the vacation notice became necessary due to atrocities being perpetrated by multinational oil companies on oil-producing communities.

The group expressed disappointment over what it described as a passive response of the state government to the constant cries and yearnings of the suffering masses from the communities whose sources of livelihood, property and lives had been completely destroyed by extraction activities in the region.

Unyekisong Akwa Ibom is a coalition of freedom fighters in the state comprising former members of the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), Niger Delta Volunteer Force (NDVF), Movement for the Actualisation of Niger Delta Republic, Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force, Niger Delta Avengers, Niger Delta Liberation Force, Niger Delta Movement for Justice and Niger Delta Warriors.

“Apart from ExxonMobil & Savannah Petroleum, oil firms that have refused to locate their operational base in the state and their refusal to implement their corporate social responsibility (CSR), the Nigerian Local Content Law in their employment and contract policies, are hereby advised to vacate Akwa Ibom State with immediate effect.
