The forthcoming documentary will focus on how oil extraction has caused the Niger Delta’s ecosystem to deteriorate, most recently with the soot issue that the area is currently experiencing.
According to research, the residents of Rivers State are “dying slowly” as a result of the soot pollution caused by illegal oil refining.
