Leaders of Okoyitoru community in Gbaramatu Kingdom, Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta State have given a 14-day ultimatum to Chevron Nigeria Limited to commence the pilling and sand filling of the devastated community.

A letter to the Managing Director of Chevron, dated October 10, 2016, through their lawyer, Omes Ogedegbe, said: “The landmass of Okoyitoru is currently washing away and if same is left unattended, the community might go into extinction hence the only remedy is for an urgent piling and sand filing to be carried out for our client and same must be commenced within 14 days from the date of your receipt of this letter otherwise, we shall be left with no other choice than to advise our client on all legal remedies available to them.”
