Operatives of the Commandant General’s Special Intelligence Squad of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have arrested five suspects in connection with oil theft in Imo State.

NSCDC spokesperson, Babawale Afolabi, who disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, December 14, 2023, said operatives intercepted and arrested the suspects while conveying large quantities of suspected illegally refined and adulterated Automotive Gas Oil (Diesel) at Obah Agwa Autonomous Community, Oguta Ohaji LGA of Imo State last Saturday.

The suspects were in four saloon cars containing large quantities of suspected illegally refined AGO, tied in twin cellophane bags and inserted in sacks.
