Travelers stranded as aggrieved Isoko youths block Ughelli/Asaba expressway in Delta

Thousands of travelers were on Monday, December 11 stranded as aggrieved Isoko youths at about 7am blocked the ever-busy Ughelli/Asaba Expressway with a call for the immediate sack of the Executive Director of Finance & Administration, Delta State Oil Producing Development Commission, DESOPADEC, Chief Askia Ogieh.

The aggrieved Isoko youths who came out in their hundreds were led in the protest by a factional President of Isoko Nation Youth Assembly, INYA, Comrade Umuakpo Ovie. The youths including women blocked both sections of the Aradhe community of the road, bearing placards with various inscriptions.

They chanted solidarity songs as they defiled the heavy presence of security operatives drafted to the area just as they claimed Askia Ogieh was allegedly shortchanging the Isoko people.
