The Nation
13 March 2012

An environmental rights group, Agape Birthrights will today stage a protest in Abuja over  environmental degradation and pollution of oil, bearing communities in the Niger Delta by multinational oil companies.

At a news conference, the group’s President, Ms. Annkio Briggs said the cries of the Niger Delta people against the “careless and heartless ways the oil companies and the Federal Government have handled issues of destruction of the Niger Delta environment was well known.”

 According to her, the group would continue to condemn and agitate against the violations of human/environmental rights of the oil-producing communities and demand for social justice.
