Niger Delta: threat shifts to crime

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Current insecurity in the Nigeria's Niger Delta region is the result of a long-running struggle by local groups for control of its abundant resources. The kidnappings and incidents of piracy for which the area was once notorious do still go on, but have declined since 2006. Oil theft, or ‘bunkering’ as it known locally, poses the greater security threat now.
