Emeka Okwechime, the Command’s public relations officer, stated this in a statement that was made accessible to journalists in Warri on Wednesday.

The statement claims that members of the NSCDC’s Special Intelligence Squad discovered the hidden loading point at Odorubu Waterside in the state’s Patani Local Government Area.

The agency explained that the suspected vandals used a tanker to barricade the only road leading to the illegal loading point to prevent security operatives from gaining access.
