The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has secured an interim court order to sell the vessel named MV flora and the 10,000 litres of illegally refined Automotive Gas Oil (AGO) stored inside the vessel to the Federal Government of Nigeria in line with section 263(11) of the Criminal Procedure Act.

This was disclosed in a statement issued in Abuja by CDPRO, ACC Emmanuel Okeh, who disclosed that the court directed the Corps to auction the seized items upon advertisement in the national dailies.

“Similarly, the court granted an order directing the Corps to sell vessel MT TORA EAGLE and 3,600 drums of illegally refined Automotive Gas Oil (AGO) stored therein, as well as a Truck and 10 drums of stolen crude,” Okeh said without disclosing the courts and the date of the orders.

The statement said that Commandant General of the NSCDC, Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu, has directed the deployment of 4,000 personnel and sniffer dogs “to provide massive security before, during and after” to forestall any breakdown of law and order during tomorrow’s supplementary governorship election in Bayelsa State.
