Industrial action and attacks from militants have forced the two biggest oil companies in Nigeria to cut their production.
Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell are both reducing output, which is helping to keep oil prices near record highs. Militant groups in the Niger Delta have blown up a section of a Shell pipeline, in the fourth such attack in the last seven days. And workers at an Exxon Mobil plant began a strike over pay and conditions.
Just imagine that this very moment there are thousands of thousands of people in Nigeria who die helpless and starving!
