Shell Oil has accepted responsibility for two oil spills in Nigeria in 2008. The spills destroyed jobs of nearly seventy thousand people. Lawyers representing the Bodo community of Nigeria's Gokana land area took action against Shell in the British court. They say the company may pay out hundreds of millions dollars for the spills. The lawyers say Bodo depend on fishing for food and jobs. They say the oil took away their ability to make money. It could cost more than one hundred million dollars to clean the oil and repair the environment.
