Yes, there is. Oil drilling releases fumes and gases that are harmful the people and animals. Some Nigerian people have died because of these fumes and explosions. In 2 years (1999-2000), 1000 people died because of oil explosions. Understandably, the people of the Nigerian Delta want safer drilling techniques.
The oil companies are using unsafe drilling techniques that can (and does) spill all over the place. The super bad part about that is the oil is polluting the water and so the fish, water, and foods are becoming vunsafe, limiting the village availibility.
