Bauchi: NSCDC Arrests Five For Oil Bunkering

The Bauchi Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) says it has arrested suspects in connection with the recent report of oil bunkering at Kainji Quarters, Gwallagar-Mayaka village in Bauchi Local Government Area of the State.

The command’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Ibrahim Abubakar Gabdo, confirmed this while addressing journalists in Bauchi.

He explained that the suspects were apprehended at the scene of the illegal bunkering with jerry cans were filled already with stolen oil.

He then said the suspects would be made to face the full wrath of the law as the Corps would arraign them before a court of law after completing its investigations.

Meanwhile, the ward head of Kainji Quarters, Malam Salihu Ibrahim, has expressed worries over the inherent danger associated with oil bunkering and called on the relevant authorities to urgently repair damaged pipelines with a view to averting potential danger to lives and properties of the people of the community.

Ibrahim told journalists that following recent damage to the pipeline carrying oil through the community, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Plc repaired the damage only for oil thieves to damage it again in less than a week to carry on with their illegal activities.

The ward head said he had since reported the latest development to the authorities and expressed the hope that repair would be effected quickly.
