In a press statement issued in Warri,Delta State which was jointly signed by the Opinion Leader, Hon. Bullet Otuaro and other Youth Leaders in the Central Youth Body, Comrade Mandela Bomini; Gbisibi Nelson Andrew; Comrade Pondy S. Ebipadewei; Ogbona Bibo; Comrade Imoun M. Emomotimi; Benard P. Okirika; Akin Edisemi Disi; Ebikeme David; Izoukumor Newton; Olueh Clement; Toju Ukweyiride, Godwin Yokiri; David Ebikeme; and Mike Amakiri, the youths accused Captain Hosa Okunbor of using Akpos Mezeh to deceive the youths in-lieu of reconciliation meeting on June 8, 2020.
They appealed to the Inspector General of Police and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC to investigate their allegations against Captain Hosa Okunbor and the illicit activities of Ocean Marine Solutions Limited (OMS), insisting that President Muhammadu Buhari should revoke the surveillance contract awarded to OMS to avert the looming danger.
According to the statement,”the Central Youth Body and the Sub Commmunities youths of Warri Escravos and Forcados were carried along when the contract for the engagement of surveillance guards along Pipeline Right of Way (PRoW) was given to Global West Limited in ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration.
“Global West Limited is an indigenous Campany, which CEO understands the creek and knows the effects of environmental degradation on the people, and did everything to carry the Leadership of the youths, Community Executive officers and Traditional Council along.
“But the CEO of Occen Marine Solutions Limited (OMS), Captain Hosa Okunbor does not understand the creek neither the people and has not visited the creek to ascertain the challenges the people experience, instead he uses ghost workers and none indigenes in the place of the indigenous youths which is against the local content law”
“Captain Hosa Okunbor should stop allowing himself to be deceived by one Andy Akpos Mezeh who is known as a betrayal to the South South for money.”
They also advised the general public to disregard the online publication made by one Don Dickson Ogugu on June 8, 2020, saying that he was sponsored by Andy Akpos Mezeh to make a biased and anti-peace publication, which would cause more trouble for Captain Hosa Okunbor and Ocean Marine Solutions Limited, if Captain Hosa Okunbor plays with their intelligence beyond the grace period to avoid youths restiveness.
