A heavy protest occurred today in Rivers state over the Black soot air pollution problem plaguing the state.
The protest was organized by the Rivers Civil Society Organization. The group called for an immediate solution to the pollution crisis.
It will be recalled that earlier this week, Governor of Rivers state, accused the Federal government of being responsible for the problem. He alleged that the Federal government was deliberately using the soot to reduce the population of Rivers state people.
He also ordered the attorney general of the state to sue the Federal Government and International Oil Companies, IOCs, operating in the state over the soot.
