Shell, the Anglo-Dutch oil group, yesterday began evacuating families of expatriate staff working in Nigeria’s oil producing delta, following a car bomb explosion set off by militants in one of the company’s residential compounds this week. Agip, the Italian oil major, has also transferred expatriate families after a bomb attack near one of its compounds.

The Shell evacuation began hours after militants stormed an oil facility operated by Total, the French multinational, killing three policemen. Dino Mahtani, Lagos
