Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice
in the state, Mr. Kemasuode Wodu, handed down
the warning in Yenagoa while inaugurating
Bayelsa State Committee on the Domestication of
the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, 2015.

According to him, the state had suffered many
years of oil spillage which had claimed many
lives.

He added that the state’s environment, flora and
fauna, on which the very existence of the people
revolves, were being threatened.

He said, “In the last few weeks, the state
government has commenced the initiation of
proceedings for the protection of our environment
against oil pollution. We have a committee
working on it.  The first action has been suits, in
which we are claiming N1.6 trillion against an oil
company for remediation of the environment and
demanding compensation to those whose
property had been impacted or polluted by the
activities of the oil companies.”
