Niger Delta: FG Knows Cabals Stealing Nigeria’s oil – HOSTCOM


The National Chairman, Host Communities of Nigeria Producing oil Gas, HOSTCOM, Dr. Mike Enuh, yesterday, disclosed that the Federal Government has full knowledge of cabals involved in stealing crude oil in the Niger Delta region.

Oil Enuh, who made the disclosure while inaugurating HOSTCOM National Youth Wing in Abuja, said that vessels used for oil theft and bunkering in the region were not invisible, pointing out that the officials of Nigerian Navy and other security agencies protecting oil installations across the country were aware of the illicit transactions. Enuh noted that there was no way Naval personnel monitoring oil situation will not detect when empty vessels  sail into in the country and the same vessels sail out filled with oil products without the knowledge of the Federal Government.

He lamented that the issue of oil theft and bunkering was business for cabals and cartel, hence the difficulties in curtailing the menace. The retired military officer reassured Nigerians that the end has come for oil thieves and their collaborators with the recent engagement of the youths of the oil producing communities in pipeline surveillance and security services.
