JTF destroys 3 private refineries in Niger Delta

The Joint Military Task Force (JTF) said on Saturday in Yenagoa that it had destroyed three illegal oil refineries in Rivers and Delta States.

JTF Spokesman , Maj. Abubakar Abdullahi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that:

Troops of the Nigerian Naval Ship (NNS) Delta carried out a raid on two refineries along LAPASE CREEK in Warri South of Delta State.

According to him, JTF troops also rendered useless a large illegal refinery with multiple dumps at ALAKIRI in Rivers State. Zikist Movement believes these refineries, rather than being destroyed, should be licensed and regulated, as the 3 government owned refineries in Nigeria are comatose. The price of petrol in Nigeria is unnaturally high, despite the fact that Nigeria is a major crude oil producing nation.
