Nigeria is the largest producer of oil in Africa. In 1970 Nigeria became a member OPEC (Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries). Since about 2012 the United States reportedly reduced the amount of oil it was buying from Nigeria, yet increased military activities in the central African country, in the name of fighting terrorism.

British empire exploration for oil in Nigeria began in 1907, yet drilling didn’t start until 1951, with oil finally being discovered in 1953. Nigeria was a colony of the British empire until 1960.

Since then the United States and the British empire (Commonwealth of Nations) covertly vied for control of so-called independent oil rich Nigeria by causing False Flag civil wars and now terrorism. During the 1960s, U.S. Secretary of State Dean Rusk even denied the U.S. was involved in such covert ops: “America is not in a position to take action as Nigeria is an area under British influence.”
By the 1980s, despite record level oil revenues Nigeria was deep into debt, mainly to the U.S. based International Monetary Fund (IMF). Almost half of the Nigerian government’s revenues were going to the IMF! The economic situation for the working class was made worse due to the implementation of the IMF’s Structural Adjustment Program.
In the 1990s new civil wars began, but this time they were tied directly to foreign oil companies (including Chevron, Exxon-Mobil and Texaco).
In 2013, the Netherlands ruled that its own oil company, Royal Dutch Shell (co-owned by the British empire), was responsible for the massive pollution of the Niger Delta.
Despite the current civil violence Nigeria is the world’s fifth largest producer of oil. Its main buyer is the United States, because most of its oil is the type consumed by U.S. industries (known as ‘light’, ‘sweet’).
