By Jimitota Onoyume

WARRI—Operation Delta Safe, ODS, formerly code named Joint Task Force, JTF, intensified its war against oil theft with the destruction of  over 30  illegal refineries in Yeye community, Burutu Local Government Area Delta State.

Officers of the Joint Military Task Force (JTF) 

Navy Captain Adewuyi  Festus who spoke to newsmen while the onslaught  against the oil thieves was on,  said the security body  will not rest until  the illicit act was flushed out of the state, stressing that they will continue to hunt for the thieves.

He said the ODS had flagged off what he called “Operation Clearance 4” intended to rid the Niger Delta region completely of the activities of oil thieves, just as  he appealed for timely  information from citizens in communities that will enable the security body to record  success in the fight to save the nation’s economy and environment.
