Navy uncovers illegal diesel depot in Akwa Ibom
The Nigerian Navy in Ikot Abasi has uncovered an illegal Automated Gas Oil (popularly known as diesel) depot in Eket Local Council of Akwa Ibom.
Leader of the team, Lieutenant Commander Umaru Sidi, made the revelation while handing over the recovered items to the state command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) yesterday in Eket.
He said the force during a patrol got information and deployed its men to the scene on Tuesday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Sidi, while giving possession of four underground tanks, a tanker truck, hoses and valves to the corps state command, Adeyinka Ayinla, described the illicit facility as an act of sabotage.
