Alleged Non-Remittance: Environmental activist wants EFCC, AGF to probe Shell


An environmental activist and legal practitioner Anderson Achilike has in a suit called on the Attorney General of the Federation Abubakar Malami, and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to probe Shell Petroleum Development Company Nigeria Limited.

Achilike in the suit filed on Wednesday at the Federal High Court, Abuja sued Shell Petroleum Development Company Nigeria limited over alleged non-remittance and under declaration of crude oil exportation and shipment; instigation of acts of pipeline vandalism; oil theft; third party interference in trunk line operations; incessant cases of fire outbreak. Achilike said he filed the action “as a matter of urgent national importance to save the dwindling economic fortunes of the country from acts capable of undermining the future of Nigeria.”

Therefore, he is praying for “an order directing and compelling the EFCC as a designated financial intelligence unit in Nigeria, acting with or through the attorney-general of the federation, to carry out an investigation of shell  over cases of non-remittance and under-declaration of crude oil exportation and shipment, third party interference in its trunk line operations, monumental shortfall in crude oil production, poor economic revenue, pipeline vandalism, disruption of oil production, destruction of oil installation and  economic sabotage  in Nigeria.”
