Nigerian Protesters Demand Shell Clean Up Massive Oil Spill
In news from Africa, a group of Nigerian protesters marched in the Niger Delta on Saturday calling on Royal Dutch Shell to do more to clean up last month’s massive oil spill. Thirteen villages in the Niger Delta have already been affected by the spill, the largest in Nigeria in 13 years. Protesters said the spill is killing off fish in the ocean.
Jacob Uka, community chairman: „The pollution is there, the problem is there, so we cannot go to the river. And being as we’re based on fishing, there is not any other way we can live with our family. Please and please, in order for peace to reign, let the federal government look into this problem immediately.“
