According to Tribune, the protest will see the group block the entrance into the depot and prevent lifting of fuel and other products to filling stations across the South-West.

“Why should NNPC refused to pay the contract money of a duly processed and signed contract. They should settle our employer so that our staff that has been deployed to the pipeline since March this year could be paid,” spokesman of New Age Global Security and vice president of OPC, Alhaji Lateef Lawal was quoted.
