Lagos - The Nigerian Navy has arrested six suspects in connection with operating an illegal refinery in Delta State.

The arrests are in line with the Navy’s drive to eliminate all forms of economic sabotage in the maritime domain.

Three Cotonou boats laden with unquantified suspected stolen crude oil were destroyed in the process.

The patrol team also recovered one speed boat and a Cotonou boat carrying some tanks laden with suspected illegally refined gas oil in Sara Creek.

Other items recovered are three outboard engines and four pumping machines.

Similarly, the patrol team deployed by NNS DELTA has intercepted a Cotonou boat laden with 100 metric tons (MT) of product suspected to be illegally refined AGO.

Elsewhere, a patrol team combed Benneth Island situated in Warri South in Delta State where it recovered 40 tonnes of premium motor spirit (PMS), a pumping machine and some hoses.

In another breakthrough, a suspect has been arrested for involvement in the operations of the illegal refinery and suspected crude oil theft in Ekpemu cooking camp at Ekpemu Creek in Warri. Some items recovered include mobile phones, a pumping machine and hoses.

A Navy spokesperson said in all the cases, investigations had commenced and the suspects would be promptly handed over to the prosecuting agencies for further action.
