Host communities exchange blows at national assembly over Petroleum Industry Bill

Some host communities exchanged blows at a house of representatives hearing on the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) on Wednesday.

Fight broke out at the hearing taking place at the National Assembly Complex in Abuja when the first group of the host communities was invited to make their presentation.

The committee said the others will make their presentation after the first group — the Host Communities of Nigeria Producing Oil and Gas — is done with theirs.

But some others kicked against the move. They stood up and started shouting at another. The shouting match dissolved into a rowdy session that further degenerated into fighting.
