The 4th  Brigade of the Nigerian Army,  Benin, said it had acquired modern equipment for the destruction of  burnt trucks and materials used by those involved in illegal oil deals.

The brigade?s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Capt. Abubakar Abdullahi, stated this on Sunday in Benin in an interview.

Abdullahi said the operation of the brigade covers Edo, Delta and Ondo South Senatorial district.

He said that officers of the brigade had continued to “arrest perpetrators of the illicit business, while destroying implements used to carry out the crime.??

 Abdullahi, calls for concerted efforts to check the activities of the `oil vandals,? adding “ oil thieves, pipeline vandals pose serious threat to national economy.

“ We therefore appeal to the general public to support our efforts by providing timely and accurate information to our troops to help check the activities of these saboteurs.??
