The Special Security Committee on Oil Producing Areas was set up by the Federal Government to address the prevailing situation in the oil-producing areas which have, in recent past, witnessed unprecedented vandalisation of oil pipelines, disruptions, kidnapping, extortion and a general state of insecurity especially of the oil and gas industry. Apart from government's genuine desire to get to the root causes of restiveness in the oil producing areas, the crucial role of oil and gas to the national economy and the negative impact that the crises in the area is bound to foist on the image of the country, has impelled government, as a matter of overriding national importance, to beam a searchlight on the oil-producing areas in the quest for solutions. Hence the establishment of the Special Security Committee on Oil Producing Areas (The Committee). This report brings together the findings of the committee and comprises two volumes - Volume I contain an analysis of the situation, while Volume IT contains a detailed account of the visits to the nine oil producing states and views expressed by the various stakeholders.
