The National Coordinator of Niger Delta IOCs Investigations, Comrade Agi Bestman has accused Indorama Petrochemical and Fertiliser Company of manufacturing spare parts illegally.
Speaking with journalist on Friday afternoon, Comrade Agi Bestman said the company has been manufacturing the following spare parts,
(1) Selling of Natural Gas
(2) Vehicle Fiber
(3) Airplane Fiber
(4) G.P Tanks.
He said Indorama has laid 18 gauge natural gas pipe from Nigerian Agip Oil Company OB OB Omoku without measurements and as a result of this Indorama has taken advantage of Nigerian natural Gas which is an Economic sabotage to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
According to him, “A company that has a license to produce Agric fertilizer and Agricultural chemical has become a Spare parts manufacturing company.”
“80% of Indorama factory workers are Indians and Indonesians, no black man enters the Indorama Petrochemical production factory because they don’t want Nigerians to know that they are extracting over 100 cubic meter of Gas every week.”
Comrade Agi also said accused Nigerian Agip Oil Company is in synergy with Ndorama illegal manufacturing deal.
He revealed that Indorama is also preparing to lay another 24inch pipe from Agip to Eleme.
Comrade Agi said the Federal Government of Nigeria National Gas Expansion Programs as approved by President Mohammed Buhari will not meet its goal if natural gas continues to be diverted to individual factories without due process and licensing.
Comrade Agi Bestman recalled that Vice President Yemi Osibanjo commissioned Indorama Petrochemical Fertilizer Company in Onne Eleme Rivers State, for the production of Granular Urea, Fertilizers and other Agricultural chemicals and products by using natural gas but Indorama Petrochemical Fertilizer Company deviated from its operational license now producing GP Tanks, Plastic Pipes, Vehicle Fibers, Aviation Fuel, Airplane Fibers, etc.
9news Nigeria had reported that Comrade Agi Bestman accused Indorama Petrochemical Fertiliser Company of making over N2 Billion naira every three days without the knowledge Of the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration.
Efforts to speak with Indorama company to react to the allegations proved abortive as calls and text messages sent to the company were not replied.
