A pipeline explosion during repair works has killed three persons and wounded several others in Nigeria’s Delta, an environmental group said on Tuesday.
The blast happened on Sunday but bodies were only recovered on Monday after the fire was brought under control, residents said.
The pipeline belonged to Italy’s ENI
“The news of another tragic incident in the oil industry which claimed three lives … came to the Environmental Rights Action (ERA) as a great shock,” said Alagoa Morris, an activist at the group.
