Originally published on December 24, 2018
The President General of Ndoni District Communities in Rivers State, Anthony Major, approached the Federal High Court in Abuja in an allegation that the Nigerian Police Force, NPF, have been threatening his life for exposing Indian owned companies involved in illegal oil exploration in the Niger Delta region.
His life became endangered after rejecting a bribe offer of N10 million to keep silent on the matter, the plaintiff who told the court that he is the representative of his community in the ongoing Tank Farm/jetty project in ONELGA said.
He alleged that instead of investigating petitions his community forwarded to relevant security agencies with respect to activities of the Indian firms, Police, laid siege at his home to arrest and detain him.
