28 March 2016
Three people were killed and several wounded when an oil pipeline belonging to Italy's ENI exploded during repair works in Nigeria's southern Delta region, according to a Reuters report which quoted Nigerian environmental group Environmental Rights Action (ERA).
The explosion happened in the Olugboboro community in Bayelsa state on March 27 but bodies were only recovered the following day after the fire was brought under control. Seven people were said to be injured in the incident.
The National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency, in charge of handling spills and other pipeline accidents, said safety procedures had been breached during the repair works.
