Yenogoa - Plans by Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) to sell 45 percent stake in four oil wells, including OML 29, which is located Nembe Local Government Area of Bayelsa State have not gone well with some host communities.
The communities are angry that Shell did not consult them before putting those Oil Mining Licenses (OMLs) on sale, reports Vanguard.
To express their displeasure with the move, aggrieved indigenes besieged oil facilities operated by Shell and asked the company to stop production for three days to address their demands.
They warned that unless the host communities are carried along in the divestment plan, they would resist the sales of the OMLs.
