Lagos – The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has secured an interim order from the Law Court to sell vessels suspected to contain stolen fuel.

Among these are MV flora, and the 10 000 litres of illegally refined oil stored inside.

This is in line with section 263(11) of the Criminal Procedure Act.

The court order therefore directed the Corps to auction the seized items upon advertisement in the national dailies.

Meanwhile, the Commandant General of the NSCDC, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, who made these declarations, stated that in the year under review, over 40 suspects have been prosecuted and convicted in Delta and Bayelsa States respectively on vandalism, oil theft and operation of illegal refineries.
