NAF targets illegal refining sites boats in air raids

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) says the Air Component of Operation Delta Safe destroyed multiple illegal refining plants and interrupted oil theft activities in Rivers through air raids.

The Director, Public Relations and Information, Nigerian Air Force (NAF), Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet, said this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

Gabkwet stated that air raids against economic saboteurs and oil thieves in the South-South had proceeded uninterrupted.

He added that two Cotonou boats were observed at Arugbana near Okrika on Tuesday, as well as an active Illegal Refining Site (IRS) with equipment and reservoirs laden with illegal items at Yellow Island near Bonny Island, all in Rivers.

“At the location, an active IRS was sighted concealed with reservoirs and a storage tank suspected to contain illegally refined products.

“Either way, the Air Component of Operation Delta Safe will continue to carry out its assigned duties until the activities of these saboteurs are completely halted or reduced to the barest minimum,” he said.
