A Federal High Court, sitting in Warri, Delta State, has fixed January 17, 2018 for the hearing of N1 billion compensation suit filed by Timi Oluba against Chevron Nigeria Limited.

Oluba had, in April, filed a suit against Chevron and Egbema Gbaramatu Communities Development Foundation before the Court.

Oluba is asking the Court to grant an order compelling Chevron to pay N1 billion compensation to Okoyitoru community, which has been washed away as a result of the activities of Chevron, and also an order compelling Chevron to immediately embark on piling and sand filing of the community to avoid further disaster; and for the Court to order Chevron to commence an Environmental Impact Assessment EIA in Okoyitoru community and entire Makaraba oilfield.
