Members of the Nembe Community, Bayelsa State, Nigeria, came together and barricaded the entrance to Aiteo’s logistics base interrupting normal work operations. Following this Aiteo reiterated its commitment to continuing to work with host communities to achieve an amicable relationship.

According to a statement from the company, the Nembe Community provides most of the supply, logistics and security contracts going into our local operations. “Apart from encouraging community participation in this manner, the company has, in addition, continued to provide considerable amenities and services directly to the community in a most beneficial and impactful way. Hence, we remain open and are committed to constructive dialogue for the development of both the nation and the community,” the statement said.

The statement went on to say “We appeal to our host communities, our partners in development, to patiently await the final outcome of ongoing processes initiated to implement sustainable development for all parties.”
