Adulterated PMS Seized By The Navy

The Nigerian Navy on Friday arrested nine suspected illegal petroleum dealers during their operation on the Igbokoda coastal-line in the Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the suspects were arrested with 92 drums of illegally-refined and adulterated Petroleum Motor Spirit (PMS), which were presented as exhibits.

The suspects were: Marvelous Kalejaiye, Chuckwuma Oyeyemi, Olajide Omoseni, Ogunfeyinmi Oriade, Omotua Uyimigar. Kola Ogungbare, Wale Ogunfeyinmi, Ario Sama and Dayo Ojomo.

Navy Capt. Danjuma Ndanusa, the Commanding Officer, Nigerian Navy Forward Operation Base (FOB), Igbokoda, who paraded the suspects, reiterated the Navy’s commitment to stem illegal business transactions on waterways across the country.

He said that criminal activities on waterways in the country, particularly in Ondo state, would no longer succeed as his men were battle-ready and had taken up the fight against such criminality with utmost priority.

According to him, the mandate of the Nigeria Navy, as enshrined in the law, is to make sure that the nation’s maritime domain is free of illegalities such as illegal oil bunkering, piracy and sea robbery.

“Illegal bunkering, as you are aware, is not just inimical to the economy of the nation, but equally highly inimical to the well-being of our environment.

“I warn criminal elements to stay clear of the coastal area and at the same time, law abiding citizens of the area should join hands in riddling it of acts of criminality,” he said.
