Nsuke who spoke in K-Dere in Gokana Local Government Area  of Rivers State, while conducting journalists around oil spill sites in Ogoni, said in a country where citizens health and welfare were taken seriously, the oil mining licence of Shell would have been withdrawn.

“If Nigeria were to be a country concerned about the health of citizens, there is no reason why the atrocities of Shell Petroleum in Ogoni would have been left unpunished, in fact, the company’s oil mining licence would have been withdrawn,” he said.
