Nigeria: Are human rights in the pipeline?

Index Number: AFR 44/020/2004

Amnesty International is very concerned that civil and political as well as economic, social and cultural rights are being violated and abused in the process of the oil exploration and production in the Niger Delta. This report highlights how human rights of individuals and communities have been abused and violated as a result of practices of transnational corporations (TNCs) and inaction and action by the Federal Government, including non-inclusive consultation processes, policies of ‘divide and rule’ and failures to clean up after oil spills. Also, the Nigerian State must honour its human rights obligations, but essential services are often non-existent, or perform poorly, in the Niger Delta.
