FG Suspends Oil Exploration In Chad Basin

The Nigerian government has announced the suspension of the exploration of crude oil in Borno State.

The suspension, according to the Federal Government, is as a result of the security challenges being faced by its personnel working in the area, adding that it would, however, resume operations if it is able to secure sufficient security.

This was stated by Mr. Ibe kachikwu, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, who also revealed that he cannot currently confirm if any captured personnel have been rescued by the security agencies as he is still awaiting confirmation from the military.

According to the Minister, the military is yet to round off the collation of data on the recent attack by the Boko Haram terror group as well as the counter attack by the military, hence, he cannot confirm the actual number of casualties
