According to the Warri Traditional Prime Minister, despite the contribution of people of the Itsekiri oil and gas producing communities to the revenues of the federal and state governments, there had been no palliatives from government committees and agencies to the riverine dwellers since the Delta State Government declared lockdown commenced April 1.
