The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has destroyed over 100 illegal refineries and arrested 200 suspects prior to its effort in fight against oil theft.

The Commandant General, Ahmed Audi, who made this know on August 09, 2023, said the feat was achieved within two years.

The CG advised personnel to double up their efforts in tackling oil theft and pipeline vandalisation.

According to him, “We also need to intensify our efforts in the protection of Critical National Assets and Infrastructure, tackle the challenge of oil theft and pipeline vandalisation, ensure the protection of farmers and farmland to guarantee food security, protect facilities in the power, telecoms and transportation sectors with an emphasis on rail infrastructure among others.

“We must begin to deploy new strategies in tackling the spate of insecurity in the land. In this direction, the Corps has prioritised training and retraining, as well as procurement of modern operational and communication equipment in our determination to further enhance the capacity of the Corps.”
