We’ll Protest N*ked to Summon Wrath of the gods Against FG- Obotim Nsit Women

​According to a shocking report, the angry women of Obotim Nsit community in Nsit Ibom Local Government Area of Akwa-Ibom State, have vowed to protest Nood to summon the wrath of the gods against the federal government and a gas company whose pipeline was blown up in the community by the Niger Delta Avengers in July 24, for allegedly abandoning them to their fate after the destructive incident.

 The women revealed that the explosion caused extensive damage to all the houses in the village besides ruining their farmlands and other means of livelihood, only for the company, working for the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), which constructed the pipeline, to simply evacuate its equipment after the incident and leave.

Mrs. Dorothy Nkanta, the women leader of the community, was aghast at the alleged lack of concern of their plight showed by government and Seven Energy Gas Company before and after the explosion. Stressing that the explosion destroyed their cassava farms, oil palm and other economic trees, Nkanta lamented:

“Unfortunately, Seven Energy came and evacuated their equipment from the site not minding the losses the community have recorded.

“That means that they do not care about the disaster they have brought to us after taking our land to lay their pipeline and locate their control valve. They are not bothered about the health hazards and general calamity the emissions from their pipeline have brought to our land.

“What have they said is our offence for giving our land out for them to do business? Is this the kind of reward we should receive from government and the gas company for the good thing we did for them? “But I want to warn that they should not provoke us to go naked on the streets for them else, it will not be well with them.

“We need compensation for the losses we have recorded as a result of that gas pipeline explosion and for the degradation of our land since that gas pipeline control valve was installed at the Asang Community High School, else, we will go naked on the streets to provoke the gods of our land to action against these people, who have suddenly turned our enemies,” she said.
