The Nigeria Police Force said it has uncovered plots by some ‘subversive’ elements masquerading as climate and environmental activists to commence coordinated attacks on oil installations in the Niger-Delta and other parts of the federation.
The information was contained in a statement by Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba.
The statement, said: “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 Acting Inspector General of Police, 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.”
