Nigeria Oil state 740x431 300x175 - Teenager, Three Others Arrested For Running Illegal Refinery In Kogi

A 16-year-old boy -in company of three others- has been apprehended by the authorities for illegally running a ‘refinery’ in Ebiya, Ajaokuta Local Council, Kogi, Nigeria. The gang has since been unmasked, members including Sumaila Sadu, 23, Yusufu Braimoh, 21, Raji Muhammed Jamiu, 24, and Simon Chokodi, 16 (the teenager).

 

Simon Chokodi from Edo State, on speaking to newsmen, said he was a bus conductor (who was apparently lured into the ‘illegal’ oil business).

 

Following their capture by men of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), the PRO in the state command, Mr. Tijani Babangida has addressed newsmen saying the culprits had been declared wanted and on the run for nearly three months.

 

An initial ‘refinery’ of theirs had been set ablaze upon its discovery a while back, but the team rebuilt and continued the illegal refining and distribution of the product until they were recently nabbed.
