Special Report: Ilaje Communities Continues to Suffer the Impact of Oil Spillage 15 Years Later
Although there are at least 9 oil rich states in Nigeria, none of the communities in these states can boast of having constant electricity supply, clean water, access to boreholes, topnotch health care centres, good roads or high standards of living. The Oil Multinationals from Chevron to Agip, Shell now NPDC, NNPC now NNPL etc., including the governments of each state do not add real value and meaning to the lives of the Indigenes. In this special report on Illaje, an Oil-producing community in Ondo, our uncovered investigative report reveals the continuous depiction of abject poverty and horrible living conditions in this region. The Nigerian Government and Oil Multinational are to be held responsible.
