National Association of Itsekiri Graduates(NAIG) has accused Chevron Nigeria Limited today Monday March 21, 2022 of mobilising Ekpan Youths  to disrupt the peaceful protest staged against Chevron over the marginalisation of Itsekiri Graduates in VTP 5 and VTP 6 in Chevron working as slaves over the years.
 
The Ekpan youths who came out enmasse with machetes and other dangerous weapons attacked the unarmed Itsekiri Graduates protesters from all sides, carted away with some valuables and injuring some  protesters in the process.
