Mr Aliyu, who spoke through an Assistant Commandant of Corps, Michael Oguntuase, said that NSCDC’s Commandant-General, Ahmed Audi, visited and endorsed the site in 2021. “On hearing of the invasion, the police patrol teams mobilised to the village and engaged them in a gun duel resulting in the loss of one of our police officers and two army personnel. “So, the yard is NSCDC’s marine exhibits yard and not an illegal dump.” He noted that the state has recorded a significant success in the fight against illegal refineries, adding that he is cautious of persons who might want to use security operatives to undermine the efforts of the government.
“Most of the exhibits there were arrested by the Nigerian Navy and handed over to us, while some of the arrests were made by us. “The Ogbogoro jetty is a no-go area for anybody because destroying the yard means destroying the exhibits,” he said.
