Police expose plans to attack oil installation in Niger Delta

INSECURITY: We are reviewing our strategies, IGP says

The police has exposed alleged plans by some people parading themselves as climate and environmental experts to carry out synchronized attacks on oil installations in Niger Delta and other states.

The suspected attack, according to police was purposely to sabotage the oil installations to the detriment of the country.

Following this, the Acting Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered Commissioners of Police, particularly in designated states to strengthen their surveillance missions around oil facilities and other critical national infrastructure.

Force Public Relations, DCP Frank Mba, in a statement on Wednesday, revealed that the CPs and other field commanders had been ordered to swing into action in order to “neutralising these subversive threats and bringing the plotters to book”.
