An illegal depot in Ore, Odigbo Local Government Area of Ondo State, was impounded by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) yesterday. According to the NSCDC, it impounded 37,100 litres of diesel at the depot.
This was made known by the Commandant of the corps in the state, Edenabu Eweka, in a statement signed by spokesman of the command, Mr Olufemi Omole, on Tuesday in Akure.
The commandant stated that the discovery and seizure were in line with the Commandant-General of the corps’ vision of zero tolerance for vandalism and destruction of critical national assets and infrastructure. He reported that some criminal elements and economic saboteurs used the arena as a storage base after engaging in oil pipeline vandalism on the high seas and the creeks in the Niger Delta.
