Video - Nigeria oil saga

More than 11,000 Nigerians from the oil-producing Niger Delta have filed a compensation claim against Shell at the London High Court. Some 17 institutions have also joined the suit. It’s the latest of several cases against the multinational oil corporation over its operations in the Niger Delta. The applicants claim widespread environmental destruction and loss of livelihood. In its defence, Shell, through a spokesperson, blames illegal third-parties for a majority of the spills. This week on the programme, we highlight the key issues in this latest suit and examine at length what experts have characterised as “years of devastating environmental destruction” of the Niger Delta.
