Nigeria: March 14, 2004

Archives


: Two warships recently acquired from the United States are to be deployed to Warri to fight bunkering, pipe-line vandalizing and other violent activities, while the three warships formerly deployed in Warri are now to be deployed to Calabar for a more effective policing of the entire Niger-Delta and the nation's Maritime resources.

Nigerian troops denied a claim by an activist group that a special military task force stationed in the volatile region near the southern oil town of Warri opened fire on unarmed villagers, killing at least 51 people. The March 9 incident occured only hours after a soldier was killed in a clash with an armed gang. - Adam Geibel

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
