Benin City - A seven-day ultimatum has been issued to the management of Zakhem Construction Nigeria Limited by residents of the oil-producing communities in Edo State, demanding a response to their letters bordering on their social and economic well being during and after the laying of gas pipelines from Oben to Kogi State.
The ultimatum was contained in a protest letter handed over to the management of the company during a peaceful protest at the site of the company in Obayantor, Ikpoba/Okha Local Government Area of Edo State, reports Vanguard.
The host communities in the letter signed by Dr. Sam Igbineweka accused the company of neglect and total disregard for their rights and expectations in its implementation of the Oben- Kogi State gas pipelines project and the Escravos-Lagos gas line project.
Copies of the letter were forwarded to President Goodluck Jonathan, the Inspector-General of Police and the Minister of Petroleum Resources.
