Lagos, Nigeria (CNN)For more than two years, Saatah Nubari has woken up covered in a strange black soot.

There's been a literal cloud hanging over the southeastern city of Port Harcourt, Nigeria. People's clothes have been covered in soot. The streets are covered in soot. Even residents' bed sheets are covered in soot.

"You're wiping your face with a handkerchief and everything is black. You're trying to clean your car and everything is black. Or you look at the soles of your feet and it is just pitch black," said Nubari, an environmental activist in Port Harcourt, Nigeria.
For the local people of Port Harcourt the soot is inescapable. It's made life hellish for residents.

I used to think that it was as a result of oil bunkering activities.

But I may be wrong.

Because Nigeria is raping them to keep oil flowing.
I don't even blame Nigeria, I blame Rivers people for sabotaging our efforts to leave this country 53 years ago.

Oversabi and treachery has a price

Gas flaring, both from oil theft and from the government. The business is on the increase and booming.

Nobody seems to be bothered to do anything about it.
