Dokubo Offers To Help In Curbing Oil Theft In Niger Delta
President Tinubu and Dokubo

Asari Dokubo, a former militant leader and a Niger Delta activist has offered to assist the Federal Government in curbing the activities of crude oil thieves in the Niger Delta region.

Speaking with reporters after meeting with President Bola Tinubu on Friday, Dokubo alleged that the Army and Navy intimidate personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) who are supposed to protect oil pipelines.

“What is happening in the Niger Delta in the past eight years was unprecedented in the history of oil production anywhere in the world.

“The vandals do not only attack the pipelines, they have migrated from the pipeline and have gone directly to the oil well heads and they take directly from the oil well heads. They set up haphazard facilities they call local refineries and artisanal refineries, this is a crime against humanity because the livelihood of the people is being totally destroyed.”

Dokubo said Tinubu had promised to take decisive actions to put a stop to the oil theft.

“So, I have volunteered to help, to assist, and to do the things that are necessary to put a stop to this evil that is being perpetrated against the people of the Niger Delta, the oil community, and the whole of Nigerians,” he said.
