The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) yesterday destroyed an illegal oil storage facility belonging to militants in Rivers State. Located about 25km south of Opubiri, the oil facility was attacked about 4:45pm by NAF helicopter on armed patrol over creeks around Opubiri, Bille and Alakiri areas. Another canoe, carrying drums filled with suspected stolen petroleum products, was also attacked at Alakiri creek. Both attacks showed the renewed effort by the NAF to clear the creeks in the Niger Delta of illegal activities and acts of economic sabotage in 2017. Enclosed, please find the declassified footage of the operation for your use.
You are kindly requested to disseminate the information through your media for the awareness of the general public. Thank you for your usual support and cooperation.
