A foremost Human Rights group in the Niger Delta, under the aegis of Ijaw Political Watchdogs. Has raised alarm over what it described as a lingering crisis in the Forcados and Escravos rivers, in Burutu and Warri South West Local Government Areas, both in Delta State.

The Rights group, made this call on Sunday the 21st June, 2020. Via a press release signed by it’s national President, Comrade Paul Akpowaide. Of which a copy was sent to coastal Times.
Comrade Akpowaide pointed out how Captain Hosa Okunbor’s Ocean Marine Solution Limited has sidelined the youths of both Forcados in Ogulagha kingdom, and Escravos in Gbaramatu, in the pipeline surveillance contract.
He further stressed that, Captain Okunbor, instead of giving to the youths of the region what is due them, has rather decided to shortchange the privileges and rights of the youths for his king’smen and choiced associates.
The statement reads:
“Nigeria security agencies should act very fast and arrest Captain HOSA OKUNBOR the CEO /Chairman of ocean marine solutions limited for causing More security crisis over pipeline surveillance jobs that is rightfully belong to the landlords for his personal gain .

The youths of that regions are fully ready for captain HOSA OKUNBOR for his EVIL PLANS against their rights .
Those who are behind such move should also be arrested for fueling More security crisis in the rivers.
Captain HOSA OKUNBOR should know that he can’t fight the youths in the creeks . You are Advised to redrawn your plans and go back to your River in Benin . You have no affiliation in FORCADOS RIVER IN BURUTU LGA AND ESCRAVOS RIVER IN WARRI SOUTH WEST LGA to take over pipeline surveillance jobs and maltreat the youths like slaves .
