Yet another militant group has surfaced claiming on Tuesday June 28th 2016 that it has blown two Shell Petroleum oil installations in Awarra, Ohaji/Egbema LGA of Imo State
In a statement signed by the militant’s leader General Don Wanniem the group said:
“Oil companies started operation in our community since 1957, but up till date, we have nothing to show as benefit. For Imo State Government, we will make sure you make no further gains from Ohaji/Egbema.
“Since God’s creation, neither Imo State Government nor oil companies have remembered us. We have been neglected and abandoned. No electricity. No tarred roads. No drinking water. No hospital. No youth employment or empowerment. We shall destroy everything in Imo State that was built with our oil money.
“We will let them (Waltersmith Petroleum Oil Limited) know that the security which they claim to have is insufficient. So, they should go and hire more because we are coming to launch attack on them any moment from now”
