Agip's offices in Port HarcourtAttackers raided Agip's riverside offices in Nigeria on Tuesday, sparking a gunfight that left nine people dead before they fled.

The attack on Agip's offices in the southern oil center of Port Harcourt is the latest in a recent rash of violence across the restive Niger Delta that has killed nearly two dozen people, cut petroleum production in Africa's largest oil exporter and helped push up prices of crude worldwide.

Agip said it "has temporarily evacuated staff and contractors from the area of the base affected by the incident and the situation is currently under control."
