    The outcome of an appeal hearing against a verdict issued earlier this year in Britain is being eagerly awaited in Nigeria.

    Communities in Rivers State are demanding that energy giant Royal Dutch Shell clean up oil spills and pay the associated costs.

    But Royal Dutch Shell says the case should be dealt with in Nigeria.
