YENAGOA—Hundreds of protesting workers, yesterday, besieged a multi-billion naira Shell Petroleum Development Company’s Gbarain-Ubie Gas Gathering plant in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State over alleged violation of local content law and poor employment policies.

The aggrieved workers, made up of welders and fitters, threatened to take their protest to the Presidency until they got justice.

The protesters accused Daewoo and Morpo, two oil servicing firms working for SPDC, of refusing to employ indigenes for technical works and shutting out indigenous companies, in contravention of the provisions of the local content policy.
