The Joint Task Force (JTF) codenamed Operation Delta Safe (OPDS)

has taken over six suspected oil thieves and seven loaded Cotonou

boats from the Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS Delta), Warri, for further

investigation.

During the handing over ceremony at the NNS Delta’s base in Warri, its

Commander, Commodore Ibrahim Dewu disclosed that the suspects

were arrested with products believed to be illegally refined diesel, also

known as AGO, estimated to be 540,000 liters.

Dewu, who was represented by the Executive Officer (XO) of the

NNSDelta, Navy Captain Adeyemi Adewuyi, said the suspects were

apprehended last Wednesday, March 6, 2019 and that the product was

said to have been procured from Opudebubo Creek in Warri South-

West Local Government area of Delta state.

He warned those involved in illegal activities in the maritime

environment within the NNS Delta area of responsibility (AOR) to

desist or face the law, as the Nigerian Navy would not relent in its

efforts to make the Niger Delta safe and fit for legitimate activities.

“We are handing over seven Cotonou boats that were arrested on

March 6 to appropriate security agencies. The boats were arrested at

Opudebubo Creek in Warri South-West council area of Delta state.

According to the suspects, they came all the way from Igbokoda in

Ondo state to buy the products from the creek. They said they were

taking the product to Igbonla in Okitipupa in the Igbokoda area of Ondo

state.
