The police have arrested four security personnel of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, and some workers of the Warri Refinery and Petrochemical Company, Warri, for illegally siphoning fuel from a vandalised pipeline at the WRPC jetty in Warri, Delta State.

The Naval Chief of Administration at the Warri jetty, was also identified as one of the suspected vandals by the operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Special Task Force on Pipelines Vandalism and Illegal Bunkering, who carried out the operation.

It was learnt on Sunday in Abuja that the four NNPC security personnel arrested at the crime scene, include, Kingsley Papper, Enekabor Mitaire, Abor Theophilus and Amagre Ernest.

Sources stated that the Special Taskforce Commander, CSP Murtala Abdullahi, had written to the Navy Commander at WRPC jetty, to present his Administrative Chief, some NNPC security personnel and depot staff for investigation over the incident.

A source said, “The IG Special TaskForce on Pipelines Vandalism and Illegal Bunkering received information that suspected vandals who were identified as NNPC security staff, Navy Admin Chief and some workers of NNPC depot, were siphoning fuel from the pipelines at the WRPC jetty, Warri.

“So, we mobilised to the scene and arrested four NNPC security personnel and some staff of WRPC and we have written a letter to the navy authorities to present the naval officer who was mentioned by the suspects.”

It was learnt that the TaskForce also intercepted a Man Diesel truck loaded with 13,630 litres of fuel suspected to have been siphoned from a vandalised NNPC pipeline at Dutse Chikun area in Kaduna.
