Former Shell boss Sir Philip Watts was sacked in a face-to-face meeting with his fellow directors and then escorted from the building by security, it was reported yesterday.

Reuters news agency, citing insiders at the company, said the meeting was held at the company’s Shell Centre, on the south bank of the River Thames in London.

The insiders did not know whether Sir Philip was aware of what was going to happen.

Just as there are continued agitations from the Niger Delta region over the negative effects of oil exploration in the region, fresh evidence has revealed that oil giant, Shell is having colossal contribution to global climate change vis-à-vis the deteriorating environment in oil producing parts of Nigeria. And that it is conscious of its actions
