Yenagoa — Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, weekend, said the incessant cases of crude oil theft, illegal bunkering, pipeline vandalism, kidnapping and other vices on the waterways and creeks of the Niger Delta, will soon be over.
According to NSCDC, the new security strategy and intelligence sharing among security agencies under the Joint Task Force code named Operation Pulo Shield, led by Major- General Emmanuel Atewe, has reduced cases of crude oil theft, kidnapping and illegal bunkering in the region.
Speaking while handing over five new patrol vans to JTF, the Deputy Command (Administration) of NSCDC, Mr. S. Bello, said the new security strategy and increased mobility of the various components of JTF were factors needed to end crude oil theft in the region.
Bello pointed out that the donation of patrol vans to JTF was to aid mobility of troops and other logistics to enhance efficiency in the fight against oil theft and kidnapping.
