Bayelsa contractors sue Agip over breach of contract

06 February 2015, 16:34

Bayelsa - Pipeline surveillance contractors from Obama, Okoroma in Nembe Local Government Area of Bayelsa State, have sued Nigerian Agip Oil Company, claiming N3 billion as damages for breach of contract, Vanguard reports.

The plaintiffs are claiming in the suit that Agip reneged on a contractual agreement entered on May 24, 2014 between parties, by opting out of the contract outside the terms of the contract.

The contract was for a retainership of surveillance services against oil thieves and pipeline vandals on Agip’s pipeline network within the Obama Operational Area in Okoroma, Bayelsa State.

They also want the court to award the sum of N3 billion damages against the defendants for breach of contract and undue interference.
