Asaba - Angry youths from three oil producing communities in Delta State have shutdown the Erhoike flow station in Ethiope East council area of the state.
The angry youth numbering 2 000 shut down the flow station and chased away the workers, reports New Telegraph.
The flow station, which handles about 150 000 barrels of oil per day, is the second highest producing flow station in the whole of Delta and one of the assets divested by Shell Petroleum Development Corporation to NPDC, a subsidiary of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
The communities are angry over neglect in the provision of basic social amenities, marginalization in employment and many other counter actions opposed to earlier agreement.
They have threatened to keep operations shut at the flow station until all the agreements the company signed with the communities are implemented.
