The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has dislodged five refineries that are allegedly producing and distributing adulterated fuel across the Nigerian States.
The refineries are located at Obodo community Creek in Warri North, Delta State,
This was disclosed in a statement by the Spokesperson of the NSCDC, Mr. Olusola Odumosu.
The operation was carried out by the Commandant General’s Special Anti-Vandal Monitoring Unit (SAVMU) successfully following a tip-off on the nefarious activities of vandals and oil thieves operating a very big camp.
Odumosu said two suspects were nabbed during the operation while other collaborators remained at large.
The intelligence report also revealed that the site belongs to one woman and two other men currently in NSCDC custody and are volunteering information to assist in carrying out further investigation.
Speaking on the operation, the Squad Commander, DCC Brah Umoru Samson, assured Nigerians that the SAVMU will not condone any act of sabotage to the economy and therefore warned all illegal operators to engage in a legitimate business that will not contravene the law or compromise the safety of Critical National Assets and Infrastructure in the country.
DCC Samson assured that culprits will be prosecuted according to extant law when investigations are over on their operations.
