The Commandant-General of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Dr Ahmed Abubakar Audi, has said they have destroyed 50 illegal refineries, recovered 300 trucks and arrested over 200 suspects in one year.

Audi, who disclosed this yesterday in Abuja during a strategic meeting with commandants and heads of anti-vandal units across the country, also vowed to reverse the trend.

“Oil theft and illegal bunkering are on the rise, but we are on it; that is why we scheduled the meeting to proffer solutions to the menace,” he said.

Audi also revealed that the management had commenced discreet investigation into the activities of anti-vandal squads across the states.
