Army calls for intensified crusade against bunkering

The Nigerian Army said it has stepped up its crusade against illegal oil bunkering activities in the Niger Delta.

The renewed vigour, Sweetcrude gathered, was informed by a directive by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika, while in Port Harcourt, to commission some projects donated to the Port Harcourt Army Barracks by the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC.

Projects commissioned were a 30-flat complex built by the NDDC and the five officers’ quarters renovated by the commission.

Ihejirika, who commended the NDDC for its generosity, expressed worries over the rising cases of oil theft in the region, said he was going to meet with his men on the issue.
