Nigeria: JTF deploys troops to Bayelsa community


The Joint Task Force (JTF) Operation Pulo Shield has deployed its troops to Egbebiri community in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State over the shutdown of six oil wells operated by Nigeria Agip Oil Company (NAOC) by aggrieved youths of the community.

Angry youths had shut down the oil wells at Idu fields, citing alleged neglect of the community by Agip as the reason for their action.

A source at the JTF headquarters, however, said 10 soldiers were deployed to the community yesterday to mediate and resolve the crisis between the oil company and the community.
