It Can’t Happen Here: Exxon-Connected Pipeline Explosion Kills 50 in Nigeria

Over 50 people are missing after an oil pipeline connecting a local source and an Exxon refinery exploded in Nembe, Nigeria, according to reports.

The explosion of the petroleum trunk line — operated by the Port Harcourt-based Aiteo Group — occurred early Friday morning local time, according to Reuters.
In the panic following the early morning explosion, at least 50 were confirmed dead even as injury counts remained unreported and the uncontained rupture continued to spout enormous amounts of flame and smoke.

The blast was reportedly followed by a large oil spill in the Nembe kingdom in Bayelsa state, according to Nembe chief council spokesman Chief Nengi James-Eriworio, cited by the Associated Press.
