The Inspector-General of Police has placed Commissioners of Police in Niger Delta and other neighbouring states on red alert.

This follows plans by some people to embark massive and coordinated attacks on oil installations across the country.

According to a statement in Abuja on Wednesday by the Force Spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, those who are attempting to attack oil facilities hide under the guise of being environmental activists.

The Police also said their plans were politically motivated and aimed at impacting negatively on national security, economic development and global oil market.

The statement reads: “The Nigeria Police Force has uncovered specific plots by some subversive elements masquerading as climate and environmental activists to commence massive and coordinated attacks on oil installations across the country especially in the Niger Delta region and adjoining States.

“These plots which are politically motivated are aimed at sabotaging oil installations with intended negative consequences on national security, economic development and global oil market.

“Consequently, the Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Mohammed Adamu has ordered Commissioners of Police nationwide, and particularly in designated States to intensify their surveillance missions around oil facilities and other critical national infrastructure.

“The Commissioners of Police and other field Commanders have also been directed to put in place proactive measures aimed at neutralising these subversive threats and bringing the plotters to book.”

The IGP warned that there would be dire consequences for persons or group of persons who may want to resort to the use of violence or threat of violence, in advancing their political or economic goals.

The Police chief while urging citizens to remain vigilant and report all suspicious characters and plots to the law enforcement agents, reaffirmed his commitment to ensuring adequate security of lives, the protection of national assets and the protection of the sanctity of our political freedom and democracy.
