Nigeria: Oil spill reported in southern Nigerian state

14th Apr 2013

BAYELSA, (Xinhua): The people of Ewellesuo in Nigeria’s southern Bayelsa State on
Saturday reported an oil spill from Oil Well 62, operated by Shell Petroleum Development
Company (SPDC).

Chairman of Oil and Gas Committee of Nembe Kingdom Nengi James, who confirmed the
incident, said he had prevailed on the people of the kingdom not to take laws into their hands
against the company, saying the spillage affected the community’s water.

The spillage was noticed by residents of the community, who saw massive oily substances
covering the river, mangrove and waterways.

“We have called on SPDC officials and reported the spillage but they have not showed up,
while the spill continues,” James added.

The chairman told reporters that he has witnessed over 10 massive oil spillages, since he
became Chairman of the Oil and Gas Committee in the kingdom, but none has been cleaned
up.

“The poor response of the company to cases of spillage have polluted our waters and reduced
the life span of the people,” he said.

“The action of the oil company is becoming vexatious and unacceptable. The relevant
agencies and government should intervene and prevail on the company to be responsible,”
James added.
