NNPC boss says most of the stolen crude oil are found in churches and mosques

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited has accused security forces, government officials, churches and mosques figures, and even some NNPC employees of stealing the country’s crude oil.

NNPC Group Chief Executive Officer, Kyari, argued that most oil theft is done by Nigerians during the 49th session of the weekly ministerial meeting at the State House in Abuja.

According to Channels TV, the NNPC boss claimed that stolen goods are typically found in churches and mosques and that a network of vandals has been stealing oil in conjunction with other thieves.

The head of NNPC revealed that the nation’s entire pipeline system for distributing petroleum products has been shut down as a result of vandals’ actions.

The Group CEO declared that a national reserve firm will be founded to handle the pipelines on a commercial basis and effectively utilise them for the transportation of goods across the nation in order to further address the threat.

He asserts that although it has been extremely challenging to handle crude oil theft, which has led to the discovery of 295 unlawful connections and made it impossible for oil companies to operate effectively, they are not powerless.
