ATTITUDE OF SHELL TO IGBO HOST COMMUNITY

In places like Itsekiri, Sapele, Warri, Ijaw, Shell normally pays compensation of what they call -RIGHT OF WAY (ROW) for laying of oil pipelines, annually. Such payments are not made to Igbo People. And for oil spillages, no Igbo speaking community receives any compensation, e.g. The spillage at Isimiri Location of 15 & 16 June 1999 which affected the whole of Ukwa up to Akwete has not be compensated till date. No community development, No road construction, Gas flaring has been going on in this areas since early Sixties.
