The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) on Thursday destroyed an illegal oil storage facility belonging to militants in Rivers State.

 Located about 25km south of Opubiri, the oil facility was attacked about 4:45pm by NAF helicopter on armed patrol over creeks around Opubiri, Bille and Alakiri areas.

A statement by Group Captain Ayodele Famuyiwa, Director of Airforce Public Relations said, “Another canoe, carrying drums filled with suspected stolen petroleum products, was also attacked at Alakiri creek.
