Share it:

The Nigerian Navy has performed a brilliant operation in Warri-South LGA of Delta state, having uncovered a hideout of oil thieves and having arrested 16 suspected criminals.

According to the Punch, the Rear Admiral Augustine Suleman confirmed the information adding that they had acted on a tip-off.

“A trip to the site revealed drums of over 8,000 tones through illegal trades.”

Suleman disclosed the strategies used by the suspect:

“What they are doing now is to connect pipes to the export line. They attach the pipes to the line and lay the pipes as far as two kilometers off shore and load directly from there.”


The official further assured the public they were doing everything possible to end illegal oil activities in the country.

It should be recalled that about two week ago the navy apprehended a suspicious 110-metre vessel laden with 670 metric tons of suspected stolen crude oil at the Forcados oil terminal in Burutu LGA of Delta state.
