WARRI—INDIGENES of Koko in Warri North Local Government Area, Delta State, yesterday, lashed out at the Itsekiri Environmental and Human Rights Group, IEHRG and other groups/persons over the allegation that toxic and carcinogenic waste/substances were dumped in the community, describing it as false.
The natives, under the aegis of Concerned Koko Indigenes, CKI, in a statement by Mr. Victor Buwa and 10 others, said:
“We use this medium to disown all publications to the effect that toxic waste had been dumped in Koko, because it is not true and same should be discountenanced by members of the public. It must be mentioned that the victim of this allegation, Ebenco Global Link Limited, did not dump toxic waste in our land.”
