30 Oil Wells identified in Cross River State

In Cross River State of Nigeria, more than 30 oil Wells has been said to be identified. And guess what, the oil wells dates right back to 65 years ago by Shell Petroleum, in Ikot Offiong Community of Cross River State.

We heard that Ikot Offiong youths who were mobilised by the community to identify all the oil points drilled and capped by Shell in the 1950s, identified the oil wells, tucked in various locations in the community.

The youths we understand, were led by Asuquo Joseph, who appealed to the Federal Government, “to come in and ensure enduring peace in Ikot Offiong and Oku Iboku so that everyone will be in peace and harmony, as well as develop the oil wells for the benefit of Ikot Offiong people and the state.”
