The National Publicity Secretary of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum Pandef, Ken Robinson has said the incidence of oil theft in Nigeria, is not a new development in the country.

Robinson, who was featured as a guest on the breakfast political program of Urban Radio, The Parliament asserted that crude oil theft, was not carried out by Niger Deltans, but by highly placed political officials who have the means to conduct such operations.

The secretary also lamented the seizure of the 3 million-barrel-capacity oil tanker leaving Nigeria by the Equatorial-Guinea Navy in August 2022, stating that the incident was a clear indication of the level of corruption in Nigeria.

Meanwhile, a political scientist and director of Afri-Heritage institutions Ufo Okeke, condemned the treatment of the people in the Niger Delta areas by the government and oil companies, stating it as the reason for their discontent.

Last week, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited NNPCL, destroyed one of the biggest oil vessels loaded with illegally mined crude oil.
