A new militant group which gave its name as Oyobio-Oyobio has threatened to wreak havoc on oil facilities of Mobil Producing Nigeria (MPN) should the company not relocate its headquarters from Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria to Akwa Ibom State, South South – where most of their mining activities take place.
A statement released by the group’s leader, Obuma Oyobio, today reads:
“We hereby give a seven-day ultimatum to Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited and other oil firms operating in Akwa Ibom State to relocate their headquarters to the state or face dire consequences.
“We have the capability to burn down any tank farm and bring down aeroplanes and choppers. Oil and gas pipelines will not be spared during our operations.”
