Oil Theft, Rivers NSCDC Destroys Bunkering Site.

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Rivers State Command, has destroyed the operations of owners of local refineries in cutting channel one area located at Degema Local Government Area of the state.

The achievement is the NSCDC’s strategic efforts to combat the menace of illegal oil bunkering activities, vandalism of oil pipelines and illegal dealings in petroleum products in the Niger Delta region.

Speaking with journalists at the site of the incident, the spokesperson of the NSCDC Command, Olufemi Ayodele, said the Commandant-General of the Corps, Dr. Ahmed Audi, has zero tolerance for all acts of economic sabotage, hence, he directed the state Commandant to step up intelligence and protection of all critical national assets.

He hinted that the success of the Marine Unit, during the operation at the incident site, was hinged on credible intelligence.

He stressed that the state commandant ordered massive destruction of all materials used in carrying out the illegal oil bunkering, and more than four different refining stations have been destroyed altogether.

To ensure that the suspects do not reconstruct the local refinery, the NSCDC Marine personnel have also been directed to intensify patrol in the area.

The Command according to him, will not relent in its collaboration with all sister security agencies to fight activities of illegal oil bunkers in Rivers State...
