UNEP report to trigger more lawsuits [Nigeria]

Observers have noted that the report of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) on Ogoniland will trigger more lawsuits on oil pollution in the Niger Delta environment. According to this group, the report has made readily available the needed technical evidence which was missing in such lawsuits in the past. A group of Ogoni activists, under the auspices of Ogoni Civil Society Platform (OCSP), during a recent rally in Bori, headquarters of Khana Local Government Area, said many aggrieved community people were already preparing for legal actions against oil companies.
