NSCDC Intercepts 150 Drums Of Petrol Smuggled From Akwa Ibom To Cameroon

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has stated that it has seized 150 smuggled drums of petrol in Akwa Ibom.

Speaking during a press briefing on Saturday, Yusuf Imam, the NSCDC commandant in the state, stated that the civil defence corps arrested two suspects on Thursday and seized five engines and one pumping machine that was used to steal petroleum products.

Imam stated that the marine unit of the command acted on intelligence and nabbed the suspects on the sea as they carried the products in a wooden boat on their way to Cameroon. 

“The marine unit of the NSCDC arrested two suspects and impounded 150 drums of PMS conveyed in a large wooden boat on the high seas in the Ibeno local government area of Akwa Ibom,” he said.

“The arrests and subsequent impounding of the exhibits took place in the early hours of Thursday.

Acting on credible intelligence, the NSCDC marine squad led by Jamilu Mohammed Adamu hit the waterways with the corps’ gunboat, chased and intercepted the boat very close to the Atlantic Ocean while attempting to smuggle petrol into Cameroon.”

 The commandant cautioned that the corps would make the area hell for oil thieves as all acts of economic sabotage and vandalism in the state will not be tolerated.

 “It’s not going to be business as usual in my time. I am here to work, and you can expect to see more of this as we will make Akwa Ibom a living hell for vandals, illegal bunkers, and oil thieves,” he said.
