The youths who stormed his palace in their numbers were protesting against the Nigeria Agip Oil Company (NAOC) in their community. The indigenes were protesting against alleged protracted power outages, refusal to pay indigenous contractors, and failure to meet its corporate social responsibility (CSR).

The protest, which began on Sunday, May 16, and lasted till Tuesday, degenerated into a fight where some youths hijacked the rally and attacked the monarch and his palace. The monarch was immediately whisked away to safety by his security details.
