'With the introduction of Amnesty, training and capacity building of youths in the Niger Delta, expectations were high that the development would culminate
in increased peace and end to vandalism, oil theft and illegal refining in the region.
But this has not been the case. Sweetcrude investigations showed that these continue to occur. The data obtained from Shell Petroleum Development Company
Limited, leading oil and gas exploration and producing company with over 500,000 barrel per day output indicated that vandalism, oil theft and illegal refining
continue to occur in the Niger Delta.'
