Fresh Oil Spill has occurred in Nembe Community in Bayelsa State.

Report coming in from Bayelsa State says a fresh oil spill has occurred in Nembe,a coastal community in the Niger Delta.

That the spill is from a burst pipeline connected to Nembe 2 flow station,a facility belonging to Shell Petroleum and Development Company.

It was further gathered that the spill is being traced to a leakage from a pipeline under the creek at the Brass River.

Meanwhile the people of Nembe kingdom have cried out loud over the refusal of Shell to clean up the oil spill that occurred on the 15th and 17th of this month at Nembe 3 flow station.

Chairman of the Nembe Oil and Gas Commmittee Nengi James says the matter has been reported to Shell but no response adding that the spill have spread to other neighbouring communities in the area.

Effort to get the view of Shell Petroleum and Development Company on the issue was unsuccessful.
