The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has handed over sixty-seven thousand, four hundred litres of petroleum products to Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, after they were tested by the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR.
Its Lagos State Command which handed over the products, recovered it from oil vandals in various locations within the State in the past four months.
It said the products were loaded from Creeks in Ikorodu, Escravos Apapa and Festac areas of Lagos State for onward movement to neighbouring countries of Republic of Benin and Togo.
The Corps Commandant, Abafi Gabriel, said the operations were possible due to intelligence information gathering by the undercover agents and other good spirited Nigerians.
Gabriel appealed to Lagosians to always provide the Corps with useful information on any illegal activities around their environment.
He promised that there would be zero tolerance for any form of criminality in Lagos, stressing the need for collaboration among other security agencies in ensuring that lives and property of residents were safe.
