Sabatoru is a Nembe-speaking Ijaw coastal community administratively situated in Nembe Local Government Area of Bayelsa State. It is a predominantly fishing and farming community. As a transit community, having Agip crude oil pipeline traversing the community environment, the community has experienced several oil spills in the recent past. The last oil spill from the community environment reported by ERA/FoEN spread through the creeks to other neighbouring communities in Nembe and Ogbia Local Government Area such as Akipilai, Oloibiri and Igbeta Iwoama. The current spill, like the previous one, occurred along the Brass/Ogoda pipeline that links Obama Flow-station.
