According to a new report by Amnesty International, over 9 million barrels of oil has been spilt on the Niger Delta, with 6800 spills recorded between 1976 and 2001. Read the Guardian's take on the report here.
If the conclusion of the report is that the oil companies are to blame then they have missed the point. The real blame lies at the feet of the Government(s) of Nigeria. They are almost as corrupt as the British and American Governments.
