The Nigerian Navy’s efforts to stop illicit bunkering and crude oil theft have been sabotaged, according to Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, the Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), who has intimated that certain troops are working with criminals to thwart those efforts.
At the ceremony of the newly promoted Rear Admirals in Abuja, he revealed the information and issued a warning that any personnel found out will face the harsh consequences of the law.
The Navy was given the duty of stopping crude oil theft in the nation by General Lucky Irabor, Chief of Defence Staff, who was present at the event.
There were 30 Commodores raised to the rank of Rear Admiral, and each one was decorated by an officer and a family member. While they were celebrating, the CNS exhorted them to continue supporting the President and the nation as a whole.
He claimed that in the battle against illicit bunkering and oil theft, the Nigerian Navy has made progress. Gambo revealed that certain employees are collaborating with criminals to undermine the navy’s efforts, nevertheless.
He issued a warning that any employee found to be undermining the defenses put in place by the navy will suffer severe penalties and the wrath of the law.
