Giving accounts of his activities particularly between August 31 and December, Commodore Adeniran disclosed that the Navy stopped the illegal activities on the sea and assisted to a great extent on land.

He said the criminal activities of illegal crude oil refining and transportation took a new dimension as the criminals now package illegally refined diesel (AGO) in strong polythene bags to conceal the real content and transport the bags in cars and trucks.

“The criminal means of concealing the illegally refined petroleum products assumed a different dimension. They now conceal AGO in strong polythene bags with sizes ranging between 10 to 50 kg. They also use drums with capacity ranging between 200 and 300 litres,” the Navy boss stated.
