Shell will clean up the oil spill in a heavily polluted area in the Niger Delta. This area is located in Bodo, Nigeria, which has about 40 thousand inhabitants. The company will also carry the costs of the cleanup.
For more than a year, The Netherlands has been negotiating in secret in the Niger Delta oil pollution conflict in the unstable southern region of Nigeria. There is large-scale pollution in the Ogoniland, resulting from oil extraction activities in the region of companies such as Shell.
