JTF recovers 4.2million litres of stolen crude oil from N/Delta

The Joint Task Force, JTF, has recovered 4.2 million litres of crude oil allegedly stolen in the Niger Delta region. One of the JTF team leaders, Captain Sunday Olaleye, said that the discovery was made in two vessels which were arrested by Operation Pulo Shield, an anti-illegal bunkering and oil theft outfit of the JTF.     
One of the vessels was arrested in Okrika Local Government Area of Rivers State while the other was arrested in Forcados, Warri waterways, in Delta State.
He said the team discovered that of the 10 compartments in the vessel arrested in Forcados, nine were filled with crude oil. Captain Olaleye told newsmen that one compartment contained 330,000 litres of crude oil, adding that this can fill a truck.
He said the arrest was made possible through a tip-off, adding that the two ships attempted to escape but for the quick response from his officers.
