AIRSTRIKES DESTROY ILLEGAL REFINING SITES AND BOATS IN RIVERS STATE                                                                                                                     29-11-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                   Nigerian Airforce says its aircraft under Operation Delta Safe have destroyed 2 Cotonou boats sighted at Arugbana near Okrika in Rivers State on the 28th of November.

On the same day, the aircraft also destroyed an active Illegal Refining Site(IRS) with equipment and reservoirs loaded with illegal products at Yellow Island near Bonny Island in Rivers State.

According to Director of Public Relations and Information of NAF, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet says similar strikes were also conducted on 27th November at a location south-east of Abisse, where an active IRS was sighted concealed with reservoirs and a storage tank suspected to contain illegally refined products were engaged and destroyed.

Another location North-west of Omama was also struck, as it was observed to be containing items suspected to contain stolen crude oil in objects tied in sacks.

The statement adds that subsequent reconnaissance flights over Cawthorne channel, Bille, Dariama, Okrika, Bonny Island and Idama revealed a retinue of destroyed and abandoned IRS, hitherto destroyed by the Air Component.

According to the statement, these sites remain inactive, an indication that the measures being employed may be yielding the expected outcome.

It assures that the Air Component of Operation Delta Safe will continue to carry out its assigned duties until the activities of the saboteurs are completely halted or reduced to the barest minimum.
