Navy won’t stop burning vessels ferrying stolen crude – Flag Officer

The Flag Officer Commanding Central Naval Command, Rear Admiral Umar Chugali, has declared that the Nigerian Navy will continue to set ablaze vessels intercepted with stolen crude oil.

Chugali explained that the burning of intercepted vessels with stolen crude oil was the Navy’s standard operating procedure.

The FOC made the declaration on Monday during a familiarisation tour of naval units under his mandate at the Navy Base, Warri, Delta State.

According to him, burning intercepted vessels with stolen crude “has been discovered, for now, as the immediate response to ensure that those illegalities on the maritime domain do not exist.”
