The senior officer stated that intelligence reports revealed the involvement of oil thieves and pipeline vandals who were supported by individuals who are bent on undermining the government’s efforts.

Abdussalam said that the Nigerian Army had already initiated actionable steps to curb illegal bunkering and pledged the division’s dedication to ending the menace. ….WATCH THE FULL VIDEO HERE
