The Commander of the CG’s SIS, Dandaura Appolos, said the success resulted from credible intelligence indicating that suspects had vandalised a multinational company’s wellhead.

He added that the suspects connected galvanised metal pipes with large hoses to siphon and locally process the crude oil.

The NSCDC Spokesman Babawale Afolabi in a statement on Saturday, said the SIS promptly acted on the information, uncovering several sites where significant illegal refining activities were taking place.

“Just as we value and protect our informants, the information received is always treated with caution and prompt alertness. As soon as we arrived, the suspect took to their heels, but we were able to arrest one Godspower Oyibo (M), 32 years old, from Delta State, who is now assisting us with further investigation.
