Godwin Ojo of Friends of the Earth Nigeria, which partnered with Amnesty and three other groups in a new report , said it will probably take up to 30 years to fully clean the area.
He noted that the failure to fully implement any of the non-emergency measures after three years has resulted in a loss of confidence among many stakeholders.
