Editor’s Note: Nigerians are revolting against huge cuts on their public programs, in order to make the cost of Petrol cheaper for Big Petrol Corporations, who have an interest in buying their Petrol cheap… such as Shell. This is being completely censored by the Mainstream Media, except for an article in which the Vatican Pope hypocritically expresses his sadness. Today the fascists express sadness, while infiltrating madness, like Obama: resigning the Patriot act he had “sadly” promised to stop. Let us not forget the Vatican supported Hitler, Mussolini, Franco. The Vatican was even aided by European/American Governments, in silencing Jewish Citizens for an Investigation of the Vatican’s World War 2 Actions against Jews. Which means the Vatican backs and covers up for Corporations such as IG Farben and IBM ( who helped/profited off of the mass murder, of millions of political dissidents, not only jewish people as Israel would have us believe).

” The Niger Delta holds some of the world’s richest oil deposits, yet Nigerians living there are poorer than ever ” - National Geographic
ABUJA, Nigeria, Jan. 6 (UPI) — Though investigations are ongoing, Royal Dutch Shell announced it resumed production from the Bonga field in Nigeria following a Dec. 20 oil leak.
Shell, in a statement to Bloomberg News, said production resumed at the Bonga field in Nigeria. The field was producing around 200,000 barrels of oil per day before the company shut it down following a December leak.
Shell closed operations at the offshore Bonga production platform following the discovery of a leak from an export line feeding a tanker. The company said preliminary estimates indicate less than 40,000 barrels of oil spilled. Bloomberg noted, however, that estimate made it one of the worst in Nigeria in decades.
Shell said it was investigating what it said was a “faulty line” from the offshore production platform. Shell has a legacy of oil spills in the Niger Delta region. The company blames saboteurs and oil bandits for most of the accidents.
Meanwhile, force majeure was declared on a field tied to an export terminal in Nigeria because of leaks elsewhere, the company said.
Nigeria is faced with security challenges because of a decision by the government to end a fuel subsidy in place for 38 years. Tensions are further escalated by threats from Islamic militants Boko Haram.
