He further remarked “We have discovered so many illegalities taking place here. We have seen reservoirs, and boilers with a network of pipes and cables, amongst others. ” The crude oil discovered in the site was unprecedented.
The Division, he said, will ensure that the Federal Government gets what is due to it to take care of the citizens. He reiterated that the budget of the nation is dependent on many factors, including crude oil production. Hence, any drop in production affects the economy of the nation.
The GOC further affirmed that a total of 19 reservoirs, with each containing a minimum of 200,000 litres of crude, translating to over 3,000,000 litres were discovered. He lamented the level at which individuals get involved in crimes that have huge implications for the national economy.
