Rivers community seeks government intervention over NAOC’s oil spill
Obrikom community in Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGA of Rivers State, has called out for government’s intervention following an oil spill from a facility operated by the Nigerian Agip Oil Company, NAOC.
According to the community, the oil spill which occurred since last week, has grossly affected the Oshimil river in the area, and nothing was been done about it by the Italian oil firm.
The Secretary General of Omoku City Council Chiefs, Martins Olowu, said dozens of people in community are affected due to oil spillage, emphasising that the entire community are in dire need of government intervention.
Olowu also blamed the federal government for keeping silence on the continuous oil spill from oil firms operating in the area, and in the Niger Delta in general.
