A daughter of one of the litigants who got judgment confined in BlackBox Nigeria that the judgement was the best thing that happened to the family in years.

“We have been on this case for years, Mobil Nigeria employed my dad as a Spy Policeman and think they can disengage him without necessary compensation. The company have been using its money chest to frustrate all efforts get justice but today’s judgment shows the common man can still get justice in this country, ” she exclusively told BlackBox Nigeria.

    This is not fair of an international firm like Exxonmobil. The argument by the spokesman us totally misleading. His illogical presentation on the media is an embarrassment to the people of AkwaIbom State in particular and the people of Nigeria as a whole. How on earth this status of a company disobey the apex court’s order and still doing business freely.

    The simple answer to Exxonmobil is ‘IF YOU CANNOT COUP WITH THE DEMAND AND THE ORDER OF THE supreme COURT, KINDLY QUIT THE LAND OF AKWAIBOM AND NIGERIA. Go back to America and China to run this kind of anti people oil/gas operation,

    This magnitude of injustice and slave labour is going on in the land but The Executive Governor of AkwaIbom State, The Minister of Petroleum Resources and his Minister of State all keep mute.
    Can this happens in the United States of America(USA) and President Trump keep mute ?

    You have not told us how much you have been paying these poor people for the past 22 years. This is wickedness of the highest order. THERE IS GOD !!!!!!!
