Nigerian musician, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy has reacted to the soot emission currently being experienced in Rivers State.
Trillertunes understands that it is no longer news that soot has taken over many parts of Port Harcourts and its environs. Though there has been an outcry by citizens, the government is yet to see the dead-end of the pollution.
Joining the host of others in reaction to the lingering emission of carbon, Burna took to his Instagram account to call for an urgent solution.
Recall that the Grammy award-winning superstar also hails from Rivers State.
Sharing some photos of people and places affected by the soot, Burna Boy in a series of Instagram story posts wrote, “Dark clouds over my city. What is the way forward? #Stopthesootinportharcourt This is what bright sunny days look for my people right now.”
Meanwhile, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike had earlier charged the state Commissioner of Police to collaborate with other security agencies, council chairmen and traditional rulers to fish out all those involved in illegal bunkering and artisanal refining for prosecution.
Wike frowned at the happening in the state. He accused those involved in the illicit acts of being responsible for the environmental pollution endangering the well-being of residents of the state.
The governor declared that the state government had resolved to tackle those involved in crude oil theft and refining once and for all.
According to Wike, his government was willing to provide the police and other security agencies all that was required to dislodge and end the activities of artisanal refiners in Rivers State.
