Abstract

The cases of Amos v Shell B.P Nigeria Limited and Dumez Nig. Limited v Ogboli show that most times, the victims of oil pollution go home without any remedy. Also, where negotiations are carried out between the oil Companies and the victims of oil pollution, the victims go home with peanuts to nurse their wounds. Since Litigation and out of court settlement has in no way benefited the victims of oil Pollution, this paper presents an alternative remedy that will maintain the status quo of the victims in the face of oil pollution.
