Agency destroys 12 illegal refineries within 3 months in Edo
5 Apr 2017
Country: Nigeria

The Edo Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says it has destroyed 12 illegal refineries in the state within the first quarter of 2017.

The Commandant of the Corps, Mr Makinde Ayinla, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Benin on Wednesday.

Ayinla said that one person was arrested for pipeline vandalism and for being in possession of 2,100 litres of illegally refined AGO also known as Diesel within the period.

He decried the increasing rate at which illegal refineries were springing up in the state and advised government at all levels to create jobs for the unemployed.

According to him, an idle mind is the devil’s workshop, and that government should create employment for the jobless youth.

He said that within the period under review, seven persons were arrested in connection with illegal mining as their documents were not updated.

The commandant also said that three persons were arrested for operating illegal and unregistered Private Guards Companies in the state.

He said that the command had arrested 15 persons for piracy, on the invitation from the Theatre and Motion Pictures Producers Association of Nigeria.

The commandant who expressed concern over the current spate of kidnapping, killings and rape in the state, assured that the corps would collaborate with other agencies to arrest the situation.
