Strange Ailments in N-Delta: ‘Oil pollution deforming, killing Ogoni babies’

Experts make infertility, early menopause claims

Monarch cries for help Govt aware of unusual births but yet to make conclusion —Rivers Commissioner for Health WHEN  the Special  Adviser to the President on Niger Delta and Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, PAP, Brigadier General Paul Boroh (retd,) in an interview with this reporter, July, in the heat of the bombing of oil pipelines by militants, disclosed that women were delivering deformed babies and turning barren in the region because of oil pollution, his submission looked incredible. But he was serious. Meanwhile, he could not place his finger on the affected area. His position  was that of a government official advancing reasons  militants should stop bombing oil facilities because of the damage to the environment and health of the people.


Seeing is believing 




But is it proper to cause harm to once own abode in the name of agitations? should our parents die of
diseases and untold hardship because  we want to prove a point at all cost to an administration that is trying to find its feet? when we keep destroying the environment are we not shooting ourselves on the head?
