Angry youths disrupt operations in ExxonMobil over retrenchment of contract staffs in Akwa Ibom.

Some angry youth from Ibeno Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom yesterday disrupted operations in ExxonMobil over the sacking of some contract staff who are natives of the area.

The protesters, numbering over 1,000, barricaded all entry points to the company with boats, coffins, palm fronts and placards with different inscriptions.

Their placards had inscriptions like “ExxonMobil, pay us our terminal benefits,” “ExxonMobil, this is the last warning,’’ “ExxonMobil should re-instate sacked contract staff from Ibeno,’’ and “Gross negligence and insensitivity of ExxonMobil to the people of Ibeno”.

The angry workers, under the aegis of Amalgamation of Ibeno Youth Presidents’ Forum, decried alleged marginalisation of the host communities by the company.
