Shell Accused of Evading Responsibility for Nigerian Oil Spill Catastrophe

In a damning report, Shell is accused of attempting to shirk accountability for the catastrophic oil spill in Nigeria. The article highlights the company's alleged tactics in downplaying its role and responsibility, raising serious ethical concerns. Critics argue that Shell's response reflects a pattern of corporate evasion, leaving affected communities grappling with the aftermath of environmental devastation. The oil giant's attempts to distance itself from the Nigerian oil spill only deepen suspicions about its commitment to addressing the grave consequences of its operations, prompting calls for a thorough investigation into the company's practices.

          There was an old Vice episode about rogue Nigerian oil refineries. Worth a watch to see how it works on the ground.

                  Big companies like shell all they care is the profit they get, the don't give a dam of what happens to the planet, they should face full force of the law and be held accountable for the mess they have caused and compensate the affected communities

                            Companies like Shell must be held accountable for their actions and compelled to prioritize the well-being of people and the planet over profits. That is the only we will realize meaningful change.

                              Shell should take responsibility or the law should follow up and hold someone responsible.

                                  This sounds insensitive, shell must take responsibility of the oil spillage in Nigeria and take the right measures to recover the lost glory of nature.

                                    This is a serious matter which should be looked at keenly .Let investigation be carried out ,if shell will be found as the root cause of the oil spillage ,then it should take the responsibility
