A new Oil Spill has occurred in Bodo community, Gokana local government area of Rivers state.
Executive Director of Youths and Environmental Advocacy Centre Network, Fyneface Dumnamene said its members in the community reported the incident which happened on Friday, August 18 2023.
Dumnamene condemned the new oil spill and called on Shell and its joint venture partners to replace obsolete Trans-Niger Delta pipeline in Ogoni land.
“YEAC-Nigeria condemns the spill-rain as well as the latest oil spill in Bodo community, when issues associated with previous spills are yet to be addressed,” he said.
“We reiterate calls for Shell and its joint venture partners to replace obsolete Trans-Niger Delta pipeline in the Ogoni area, which are overage and now bursting and deflating like balloons and destroying the environment,” he added.
