Niger Delta Youths Storm National Assembly

Written By Joseph Y. Musa on Thursday, April 25, 2013 | 4/25/2013 01:51:00 pm


Youths from Delta state have stormed the National Assembly in Abuja to protest government sale of oil mining licenses (OML) in their communities.


Emmanuel Uti, the legal adviser of the group, told Daily Trust that the sales of the licenses are fraudulent and they want the government to stop it immediately.
The protesting group, earlier thought to be militants, comprises youth leaders from Itsekiri, Ijaw, Ndokwa, Isoko and Uhrobos ethnic groups in Delta State.
The protesters came in about 10 buses belonging to the Delta state transport authority and blocked the entrance to the National Assembly, causing heavy traffic build up.
