Default Re: Crisis in Nigeria (Dayo Olopade & Eliza Griswold)

About two months ago Shell pulled out all but essential personnel from Nigeria, with personnel not returning till about two weeks ago.

I am told from someone who worked in one of the cyrogenic power plants in the Delta region that there are several rural villages that are in constant warfare about who has rights to set up illegal checkpoints serving as tolling stations along conduits for trade/transportation between Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.

So at least in that area it would seem the infighting is more economic then religious based.
