LAGOS, Nigeria, June 1 (UPI) --
The Bomu pipeline protest in Nigeria was in its fourth day Friday with Shell Oil
Co. continuing to cut back on production.
Shell had reduced output by 150,000 barrels a day since villagers from K-Dere occupied the pipeline hub Tuesday, demanding a contract to supply goods and services, a spokesman said in Lagos.
The hub serves the Bonny shipping terminal.
The protesters are said to be demanding as much as $1.6 million in cash.
