Agip Tensions Serious as Protests Shake Brass Island due to Power Outages |
There is serious tension in the Kingdom of Twon Brass, the Brass local government area in Bayelsa state, as women and young people barricaded the gates of the Nigerian Oil Company Agip (NAOC) on the island’s prolonged power outage, according to the SaharaReporters report.
Agip’s largest oil facility in Nigeria, Brass Terminal, which serves as the center of its operations in the country, is located in Twon Brass.
Twon Brass Kingdom consists of Ada Ama, Cameroon Ama, Sambo Ama, Shidi Ama, Kemmer Town, Imbikiri, and the Copper Gate, where NOAC is located.
NAOC has been rationing electricity supply between the kingdoms of Town Brass and Okpoama for several months now, and this situation is not getting along with the people.
After several appeals to Agip to rectify the situation, the people reportedly had to show a little patience, making sure Agip would restore power in the affected areas.
