OILMONSTER.COM- The Inspector-General (IGP)’s Special Task Force on Pipeline Vandalism attached to Pipeline and Products Marketing Company (PPMC) Warri Depot says it has apprehended six suspected crude oil thieves.


The Task Force Unit Commander, Superintendent of Police (SP) Mohammed EL-Yakubu disclosed this while addressing newsmen yesterday in Warri.

EL-Yakubu said the suspects including a female were apprehended last Friday at about 6:00 p.m., along the coastal areas of Safi 1 and Safi 2 in Warri South-West Local Government Area of the state.

The commander said that the task force also impounded three speed boats, two large wooden boats with pumping machines.

Also impounded were: drums containing about 10,000 litres of locally refined products suspected to be Automated Gasoline Oil (AGO) popularly called diesel.

He said the arrest was in line with the IGP, Mohammed Adamu’s zero tolerance on pipeline vandalism and crude oil theft in the country.

EL-Yakubu said the feat was made possible based on  intelligence gathering efforts of his men and commended them for their commitment to the IGP’s directive.

“The six suspects will be charged to court after the impounded product has been subjected to a laboratory analysis by  officials of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR),” he said.
