Documentary: Ayetoro Sea Surge And A Mute Federal Government (VIDEO)
Ayetoro is a community in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria. It is located on the Atlantic coast in the Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo State. Founded in 1947, Ayetoro is known as a floating city for its marine businesses with commercial fishing services and transportation as the major occupation of residents and the mainstay of the community. A floodgate of doom was opened in the 70s when crude oil was discovered in commercial quantities in the seabed of the community following the visit by multinational oil companies with drilling ships and other equipment to extract its offshore oil.
