Izombe Community Protest
The people of Izombe Community in Oguta Local Government Area in Imo State, demonstrated massively against an oil corporation, Addax Petroleum, asking them to leave their land because according to them, the oil company has been drilling about 7000 barrels of oil from the land daily since 1974 as Ashland Oil, and has in no way ameliorated their immediate problems, as they are poverty-stricken even, despite being blessed with huge deposits of oil. The women, Children, youths and Chiefs all took to the street, chanting "Addax Must Go!!! Addax Must Leave!!! "
