How Oil Workers Abuse Underage Girls in Bayelsa Community – Monarch Cries Out



King Bubaraye Dakolo

His Royal Majesty, King Bubaraye Dakolo, Agada IV, the Ibenanaowei of Ekpetiama Kingdom has disclosed a disturbing trend in his kingdom which is one of the major oil and gas hubs of the Gbaran/Ubie Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) multi-billion dollar plant with pipelines that run from Bayelsa to Soku/ Bonny in Rivers State.

In an interview with Palace Watch which was published by The Guardian, the monarch disclosed that many oil workers are paedophiles, adding that the workers deny the unborn children if the girls get pregnant.

See excerpts below:

Your Highness, could you please expatiate on the allegation that some oil workers are paedophiles?

Yes, most oil workers in my kingdom and other areas around here have this sexual perversion in which children are the preferred sexual objects. But as disgusting as this may sound, they do not seem to have any remorse about what they are doing. When they get into a community, they lure very young girls between the ages of 12 and 14 years to bed. They make them some kind of sex slaves, luring them with money. Too many men and too few girls. They do this to girls in primary schools and Junior Secondary (JS1). They thereby destroy the social environment they find themselves. This is so bad and grave a crime that one can’t properly quantify in terms of Naira and Kobo.

For instance, when they spill crude oil, they pay damages, just like when they acquire land. But when they destroy these very little girls, thereby destroying the entire community, the entire Kingdom and Niger Delta, they pay nothing, because it is difficult to quantify acts like this in terms of money. This act is so destructive, disgusting and bad. So presently, I am looking for people and organisations that will collaborate with me to enable me to sue them, especially Shell Petroleum Development Corporation (SPDC) that is operating in my area. In fact, what these people are doing to our little girls is as bad as genocide.

Have you done anything to stop this?

I was only coronated last June. My first anniversary on the throne is going to be on June 25, 2017. I am, therefore, just putting my plans together first. I will be very much ready to collaborate and work with such bodies as the United Children’s Funds (UNICEF) and NAPTIP in this regard. I hope to find a way of paying UNICEF and NAPTIP courtesy visits and discuss with their top people to see how we can knock these plans together so that I will understand how best to approach this problem.

If I have an understanding with the world bodies I mentioned earlier, we will raid the hot spots, where these activities take place daily, so that the oil workers engaged in this act will be arrested alongside the minors they sleep with.

This will force the little girls to speak out. It will be interesting to hear things like: “This 45-year-old big, fat man has been having sex with me (aged 12) regularly at little or no price all these years” in the glare of the camera and pressmen, for the world to see. I think if this is done once or twice, some of the oil workers, who engage in this act will be forced to moderate their animalistic urge or desire for little children. And for almost 40 years or longer, this has been our shame. This started since the time oil was first discovered in the mid-50s, though it was not noticed because then, things were done in moderation, but that is no longer the case today.

Sometime between 1990 and 1991 in my kingdom, I was a witness to this type of rape. And presently, the Liquefied Natural Gas Gbaran/Ubie project in my kingdom is the hottest spot for this malady.

Today, if you go to most schools around these areas, you will hardly find girls. But in the wee hours of the evening or night, you will find these children with oil workers in their areas. Another point worth mentioning is that no matter what you do, these girls will not go to school, as they prefer trading and doing brisk businesses that will fetch them money. As the traditional ruler of this kingdom, I know for sure that it will take a lot of courage and efforts for a parent to be able to keep his/her girl-child at home for her to develop normally my kingdom is the hottest spot for this malady.

So the number of children resulting from this illicit sex must be many in your domain. What happens to the children, since you said the oil workers refuse to claim them afterwards? 

Yes, these types of children are very many here. Their families have continued to suffer in all ramifications. For example, in 1991/92, which is 26 years ago, when a 10-kilometre road was to be built into my kingdom from Yenagoa through a virgin forest, a company known as Willsborough was commissioned to come and do the sand dredging in these areas. They came with a dredger called “Kitibin”, which had the capacity to do over 22,000 metric tons of sand per day. And they were pumping like this non-stop for 365 days. They had up to four booster stations at a time. After the main dredger must have dredged for about one kilometre, they would put a booster station there. In the process, they brought about five boat houses, which had four decks. They had several of them around the places. They had close to 3,000 workers, all randy males ready to go, in a small community of less than 1, 500 population at the time. Other communities around here were of a similar population or even less.

So, these randy men were adequately funded by their oil companies. They had good food, drinks and light. They had surplus table water on daily basis. With this level of comfort, they had all their randiness on display here. In the process, they impregnated a lot of our children. There is one particular case I would not want to mention for now. Another victim of this act of paedophile, who was about 12 years or so, was impregnated by a white man. The man was said to have been above 40 but had no child. He never claimed this pregnancy or child and ended up not taking care of this little girl and her child. There are so many other cases of bigger ladies, who got pregnant for these men, but once the dredging exercise was over, these men also disappeared, leaving the women to take care of their children.

    The parents should be charged to court as well. They encourage the young girls and feed off them…that’s why they’re not in school.

      Blood of Jesus, someone finally had the gut to speak about this. God will bless you Sir. Listen guys. This is about the social carnage that has been going on in the niger delta for the longest time. When I worked with a crew in Isokoland in Delta State, the girls were pillaged literally by the oil workers – white and black. You come to the crew for two weeks and then you take leave. The white men come in for six months because their commute is more expensive and farther. This is why girls were fodder. They offered these low socioeconomic status girls the breakfast, lunch and dinner on the crew – which was five star restaurant style. Back then the girls were about 15 to early twenties. I guess they have integrated pedophilia. This is the origin of the very high-yet-heavily-denied HIV and AIDS rates in Niger Delta villages. We suffered the brunt of AIDS and Hep B because of the oil industry. On my crew, teh white men had thei girls, which they also changed like shoes. When they moved on to another crew, they picked new interests and the girls would settle for other males. Many of the girls had illegitimate children. The femle kids dont suffer much because females do not inherit. the males lack acceptance in the traditional society and cannot inherit. You have all these kids with “whey ya papa” syndrome who dont feel accepted yet, they have no where to go. This is a big issue – social chaos brought on by the oil sector that nobody ever factors into assessments of oil impacts on communities in the NIger Delta. I thank this CHief for speaking truth to power. Something ought to be done. They are probably resorting to the younger girls because they think it will spare them HIV infection. They are probably hunting for virgins that give them some “assurance” they wont be infected with HIV. Of course, there are those who just thrive on proclivity. A significant number of the Brits I worked with back in the day lived in Southeast Asia. Never understood why until I learned about prostitution in that part of the world, and well, the oil industry is there as well. You know, Funmi Iyanda did a video piece on this when Rotimi Amaechi was governor. Cant remember it now but she tells this story within the context of the origins of kidnapping and crime on Bonny Island. Bonny’s problem was the petrochemical complex

    Why do i not believe this man?the people in community i am sure are the principal rapists,ijaw men that sleep and marry underage girls. Those girls are the ones probably fending for the whole family,girl children in these communities are used and abused

      @,Fifi, not only do I not believe this guy, i cringed at that his statement comparing payments on oil spillage with non payments on violated girls. He sounded more like he doesn’t give a hoot as long as they pay(financially). Nevertheless, any paedophile caught should be severely sanctioned both by their employers and the hands of law. I also think he exaggerated about the age of these girls

      @Fifi, you don’t believe him? What would he gain by cooking up such a lie? He’s a visionary leader who has the interest of his people at heart, especially young girls. This man speaks nothing but the gospel truth. Only a moron would think he’s lying.

      Because you have not lived it since you are in your own bubble. Go find a job on a crew and spend a month there and you will be dumbfounded by what you find.

    I guess this accounts for the large number of Bi-racial individuals living in the Niger Delta. Exactly what Kaine Agary addresses in her novel yellow yellow as she exposes the issues of sexpliotation and oppression, mental and environmental degradation,repression and subversion metted out by these oil is indeed a very pathetic situation and even more pathetic that Nigerian men that claim to be fathers with supposed lovely homes perpetuate such crimes.
    Kudos to leaders like king Dakolo,who are not afraid to speak the truth,illuminating the darkness pervading the Niger Delta and standing for the fundamental knowledge of what is right in a world that has lost it’s moral consciousness. I hope one day people will come to the realization that life moves in circles and surely we always reap with what we sow.

    @Darius, Fifi and unadite are airheads. Nobody asked Fifi if he/she believes King Dakolo. Why not carry out some research to find out if such ordeals take place rather than assume the ruler is lying. This level of distrust in us as black people is of great concern.
    Did Fifi doubt Emir of Kano, Sanusi, for advising Muslim Northerners to educate little girls and stop marrying them off to old men? If you can’t offer the man any assistance, please shut up.

    Reading the stupid comments here especially from @fifi and the usual airhead @hadiza aka sugabelly..I wonder why some men even bother helping women ..they should not bother and should look the other way and leave them strong, ranting banshes to fight for their gender..but the truth is that those feminists dont even care about their fellow women in real need (not the mercy aigbe type)..they just like ranting and wailing about men gives them joy to thier miserable hearts

    @Hadiza…..The same way your Nigerian monster father raped and cheated on your mother.

    BTW if this your comment was written in all seriousness,i’m truly sorry for whatever actions some did to make you have this point of view that all Nigerian men are the spawn of Satan.

      Hey Chief, why is it easy for foreigners to come into your country, rape your children and women and steal your resources under your nose? Or is it feminism that caused this one? When I tell you Nigerian patriarchy does not afford its women protection and is as weak as watery poo, you will start crying like a defeated cockroach. How are you going to ‘remedy’ this demonic situation as the ‘patriarchs’ of our society?

    Silly conclusion…of course they white angels and can’t do such…
    Some of you miissed the case of UN french soldiers abusing kids in Congo..
    You need to go out and do some research…paedophilia is a big problem in the western world…same as least drugs is self inflicted..
    Quite sure young boys were abused too..
    No one leaves their child unattended in the UK /US…go figure out why..

    I like the fact that he claimed that the girls won’t go to school but come out in the evening. Their mothers need to be talked to as well. They need to rehabilitate and counsel each family. BTW Niger delta people how far?

    This is sad.. Nd very sickening… I am starting to believe sugabelly and Co.. but at this point I don’t believe it’s a Nigerian men thing.. I think it’s just men in General.. différence Is that in Europe there are laws… The reason why these white men don’t do such disgusting things is because they are scared of the law, and the punishment.. that’s why they come and do such in Africa.. and this is not just an issue of rape.. its the molesting, the cheating, the polygamy, the abandoning of wife nd kids.. I know a European guy who was amazed at all the nonsense that black men get up to.. Nd he honestly said.. “I cant get away with this in my country cus my wife will take my kids and never look back”.. so he proceeds to do it in Africa..

    Just imagine

    Very happy an interview such as this is coming out.

    The truth is that this happens well beyond the oil community expats and beyond the Niger Delta. There’s this rationale that expats have to live out their sexual fantasies and be as wild as possible when in these foreign work lands.

    Be it South East Asia, Eastern Europe, South & Central America, Africa and even the Middle East – You’ll find raging male expats living out their fetishes and fantasies to the highest extremes. You have locals of course who have capitalized on this to make it a business venture by supplying these pleasure women whether they be underage or not.

    These expats usually come alone and sort of morph into the existing boys club where as some sort of badge of honour they go about doing all kinds of acts.

    Even in Lagos, you’ll be shocked to know of the pimps that frequent public secondary schools lurking around after school to get girls for “white men”. Its sickening to be around where these things are discussed.

    The problem is age old and needs a far greater global beamlight.

    How many 50-60 years old mixed race Isoko, Itshekiri and Ijaw women in Delta state know their dads? Even if we have more young ladies throwing themselves on these men these days, something must still be done.

    Kudos to the king for speaking up and starting a conversation.

    Oh please! It is everywhere! If you don’t train or hold your children well, these are some of the results you may get. So, wait sir, if the “white men take care of the girls and their babies, that will make it okay? I have heard stories about Bayelsa girls from even corpers! These children will be competing with each other on who don born and who neva born and if you neva born, u neva be big girl. You can imagine the rubbish.
    Even if UNICEF come, are some of them not men, who is to say that they will not still sleep with your girls??? Abeggi, let everybody make conscious effort to raise our children. It is not easy, I know especially with everybody looking for money. May God help us all.

      Youre so silly because your peanut brain cant sit down and THINK. These peoples land is constantly being exploited and destroyed by oil companies while they wallow in poverty and then they have some rich white men offering to spoil them for sex, why wont they have that kind of poverty mindset? Why wouldn’t their parents encourage such behavior? No one is saying they are right but can you really blame them? They watch these white oil workers enjoying such luxuries and making billions from their own land without giving them ANYTHING. Their schools are rundown, no constant electricity, poor food and hygiene and you expect them to just close their eyes or what. Who no like good thing? I hate people like you that lack not only ability to think critically but also empathy. If our government actually cared for and protected these people wouldn’t they have more value for themselves and their lives? This is a deep rooted socioeconomic issue but most people like you lack the ability to think, its only “home training” you have the capacity to think of!
