NAF destroys illegal oil refineries, barges


In its concerted effort to stop illegal bunkering and criminal activities in the Niger Delta, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) Monday destroyed illegal oil refineries and barges filled with petroleum products.
A statement by Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, Director of Public Relations & Information said the refineries and barges were sighted by NAF Diamond 42 aircraft on Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission in Bille Community of Rivers State.
He said thereafter, an Mi-24V helicopter gunship was called-in for attack.
“The operation was a success. A similar operation was carried out with remarkable success about 2 days ago in the same location. These are clear signals to criminals operating in the South-South region, as well as other parts of the country, that it is no longer business as usual” the statement said.
