NSCDC Discovers Massive Illegal Refinery Site In Rivers State [Photos]

A massive illegal refinery site in Odagwa forest, located in the Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State, has been discovered and successfully dismantled by officers from the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

Trojan News reports that the NSCDC spokesperson in Rivers State, Olufemi Ayodele, confirmed this in a statement issued on Monday.

He stated that the latest operation was a crucial step in combating the rampant issue of crude oil theft within the nation.


“We are carrying out this operation without compromise. And as I said, the NSCDC will not stop in its fight against crude oil theft in the country. This is a major achievement.

“You can see how big this tank is. About five cooking pots have been seen, and there are still more cooking pots. Each of the cooking pots can contain about 60, 000 litres. But that other large one, we estimate it to contain 20, 000 litres,” Channels Television quoted Ayodele saying.
