27 July 2011

Umuahia— Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State has accused a top traditional ruler and his people in Ukwa West Local Government Area of aiding illegal oil bunkering in their area.

His accusation came against the backdrop of  activities of illegal oil bunkerers who allegedly lifted 150 trucks of oil from the area.

Orji, who was briefed on the development by the Divisional Officer of the Civil Defence Corps in the area, Mr. Ofondu Hyacinth, during his visit, vowed to ensure that the perpetrators were brought to book.

Orji said: “This is a pure case of economic sabotage. Those people, the company, if they were doing a legal job, they will not run away when they see securitymen.
