One of the arrested barges, according to the Naval Director of Information, Rear Admiral Christian Ezekobe, had about 70,000 litres of suspected illegally refined AGO while the other was carrying a mixture of AGO and water. He also stated that the patrol team arrested another barge conveying about 200 MT of suspected illegally refined AGO at Owogoro Jetty in Port Harcourt.
