What are the environmental and social impacts of Western oil corporations in the Niger Delta?

Dirty Money is a graphic novel that tells the incredible story of Dotun Oloko, a Nigerian whistleblower. He tries to expose what he suspects is the involvement of the British Government and European Institutions in the laundering of millions of dollars of money stolen from Nigeria by James Ibori, the corrupt former governor of one of the country’s oil rich states. Suspecting colossal fraud and corruption, Oloko reports the facts to the UK department for international development and the European Investment Bank – only to find his family placed under covert surveillance. In the end, Ibori will be sentenced by a London Court for fraud and money laundering, but the western institutions that Oloko alleged were complicit are still in business.
