Breaking News: RED SCORPION have threatened to reduce Oil production in Imo state

“RED SCORPION” have threatened to reduce Oil production in Imo state to zero, also, that it
will destroy all government assets in the state built with ‘oil money’ from their community.
The group which had claimed responsibility for blowing up two Shell pipelines in Ohaji Egbema
axis of Imo State, vowed to cripple the activities of Agip, Shell and Waltersmith oil
companies operating in their area for allegedly exploiting the community without living up to
their responsibilities to their hosts. The militants stated that their anger goes for
the neglect and gross marginalisation of their oil bearing communities, the group, Niger Delta Red
Scorpion, listed the Imo Government House, Imo State Secretariat, Niger Delta Development
Commission (NDDC) and Imo State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission
(ISOPADEC) buildings among others as assets they have marked for destruction.

In a statement signed by the group commander, General Don Wannie, the group alleged that Imo
State Government and the oil companies are marginalising and denying their community of
the derivable benefits from their land. The statement reads in part: “Oil companies
started operations in our community since 1957 but till date, we have nothing to show as benefit
and for the Imo State Government, we will make sure you make no further gains from Ohaji
Egbema.” Continuing, he said: “Since God’s creation,
neither Imo State Government nor oil companies have remembered us, we have been neglected and
abandoned. No electricity, no tarred roads, no drinking water, no hospital, no youth employment or empowerment. We shall destroy everything in Imo State that was built with our oil money.”
The group, further warned Waltersmith Petroman Oil Limited of their imminent attack,
stating that they should be ready, and should not take them for granted.
“Waltersmith Petroman Oil Limited should get
ready to observe our witch play. We will let them
know that the security they claim to have is
insufficient so they should go and hire more
because we are coming to ‘launch’ them any
moment from now.”
The group, however, asked the Federal Government to immediately redress the situation
and not make the mistake of taking them for granted.
“If Imo State Government and Nigeria think we are
joking, to God, we will ‘shock’ them well,” the
statement read.
