The Joint Task Force has recorded another success through its Operation Delta Safe as it foiled an attempt by some militants to steal an oil control unit.
The JTF said its operatives at FOB FORMOSO repelled an attempt to vandalise and steal the control unit from a well head in Nembe creek, Bayelsa East senatorial district.
The Vanguard reports that this incident coincided with the raiding of the Bukuma Jetty in Rivers state by soldiers who arrested three suspected militants and one Cotonou boat laden with illegally refined automated gas oil.
The coordinator of the Joint Media Campaign Centre (ODS) Lt Col Olaolu Daudu, said in a statement in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state, that the identified oil facility is Well Head 72, operated by AITEO company. Upon confrontation, he said the suspects abandoned their tools and fled the scene
