Abuja - The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) has destroyed two more illegal barges laden with suspected stolen petroleum products in the Niger Delta.

NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, disclosed the destruction of the facilities.

He said the barges were set ablaze by NAF helicopter around Opu-Bille, Yellow Island and Bille area of Rivers State.

"The latest operations, like the previous ones, are clear pointers to the fact that it is no longer profitable to steal crude oil in Nigeria and increasingly difficult for anybody or group of persons to divert our commonwealth for selfish interest," Famuyiwa said.

He added that the NAF would continue its operations to rid the creeks of criminal elements to make the region safe for genuine economic activities.

The Nigerian Air Force has in the past two weeks destroyed a number of illegal refineries and oil barges in River State.
