THE Nigeria Security and Civil Defence
Corps (NSCDC), Kaduna State Command, has arrested four tankers for illegal diversion of fuel not less than 148,000 litres.

Parading the suspects before newsmen at the command headquarters, state Commandant, Alhaji Modu Bunu, attributed the success to information received on the plans by the culprits to perpetrate the acts over the weekend. Bunu explained that on receipt of the information, the command quickly mobilised operatives to strategic locations, leading to their arrest.

A break-down of the vehicles and the content shows that the tanker with registration number KAF 662 ZA contains 30,000 litres, DKA 515 ZP is with 40,000 litres and the third one with registration number BAU 262 XR is containing 45,000 litres which were suspected to have been diverted.

In the same vein, it is also amazing to state here that the remaining truck, a DAF 85 is without registration number and was conveying 33,000 litres of PMS suspected to be vandalised products. The apprehensive occupants of the DAF on sighting operatives of the NSCDC abandoned the vehicle and took to their heels.
