Oil Theft: Navy Commends Akwa Ibom’s Ataba Youth Cooperation

As the clampdown on crude oil thieves and illegal bunkerers continues in the South-south region, the Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Admiral IE Ibas expresses the appreciation of the Nigerian Navy to the gallant Youths of Ataba Community in Akwa Ibom State.
The commendation follows the exemplary role played by the youth which led to the arrest of four suspected oil thieves with about 70 drums of products suspected to be illegally refined automotive gas oil (AGO).
The Youths alerted the operatives of NNS JUBILEE in the state on the activities of the suspects.
The CNS urged other youths in the Niger Delta region to emulate their patriotic act which is a testimony of the Nigerian Navy’s commitment to strengthen community relations in the current effort to eliminate all forms of economic sabotage and crimes in the maritime areas.
In another development, the patrol team of NNS PATHFINDER under the maritime component of OPERATION DELTA SAFE has intercepted and destroyed 15 drums of products suspected to be illegally refined AGO at Iyokiri and Ache-Ama Communities of Isaka in Rivers State. The drums were conveyed in a boat by the suspected bunkerers who fled on sighting the Naval patrol team.
