Aiteo meets with ex-militants, youth leaders over illegal oil bunkering

Niger-Delta ex-militants and youth leaders have pledged to join Nigeria’s leading energy conglomerate, Aiteo Group, in its bid to engender more peaceful coexistence, stop pipeline vandalism, illegal oil bunkering and oil refining in its areas of operation, The Guardian reports.

This consensus was reached at a meeting coordinated and hosted by the former leader in the Niger Delta struggle and a major stakeholder in the Aiteo NTCL, Rivers State, Sobomabo Jackrich, known also as Egberipapa.

Egberipapa said the meeting was called as a result of the peaceful dialogue between him, some other leaders and Aiteo to address issues bordering on surveillance contracts and environmental pollution in the creek, river and land within the communities that host Aiteo.

The representative of Aiteo, Tamunokuro Iyalla, said the management of Aiteo is ready to compensate the region, if they “will quit carrying out illegal refinery and illegal bunkering activities”.
