The Nigerian Army has destroyed two cars and over 500 drums of adulterated diesel seized from smugglers along the JEBS community in the Calabar South Local Government Area of Cross River State.

Addressing newsmen during the exercise near Jonathan Bypass on Friday, the Commander of Operation Delta Safe, Sector 4, Col. B. O. Amakor, said:

“We have 500 drums of diesel which is worth millions of naira and they are being destroyed alongside two vehicles which were used to perpetuate the act

“Some suspects were arrested and after preliminary investigations, some of the people who were used as labourers to offload the products were apprehended and we have handed them over to the relevant agencies for prosecution

“We are reaching out to locals through community and youth leaders to help us with information and cooperate with the security agencies to report these people when they are seen

“The challenges we are facing apart from the issue of logistics is the challenge of the locals who are not ready to divulge information.’’

Col. B.A. Amakor added that Operation Delta Safe was doing its best to safeguard Cross River, particularly the waterways to stop smugglers from carrying out their illegal activities.
