The recent move by Shell Petroleum Development Company’s (SPDC) to repair the export pipeline at Forcados Terminal has pitted it against its three host communities, who have threatened war in the area.
SPDC had awarded the repairs of the 48-inches export pipeline to a local contractor, HydroDive Nigeria Limited, a move the three communities said was against the Local Content Act.
Some officials and members of the three communities: Odimodi, Beniboye and Isiayegbene, all
in Burutu Local Government Area (LGA) of Delta State, therefore stormed HydroDive’s head office at Wharf Road, Apapa, Lagos to first stage a peaceful protest as a warning signal.
