The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited has appealed to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to help tackle the menace of crude oil theft in the country, stating that no one is ready to invest in the oil sector due to the menace.
The Group Chief Executive Officer of the NNPCL, Mele Kyari, made the appeal at an interactive session with the Executive Chairman of the EFCC, Ola Olukoyede, at the NNPC Towers in Abuja on Monday.
In a statement by the NNPCL spokesperson, Olufemi Soneye, the company’s helmsman was said to have spoken about the efforts by the company to eradicate corruption from its system, to stem crude oil theft and pipeline vandalism.
Kyari had contended that going by the volume of oil stolen daily, crude oil theft was the most humongous and virulent economic crime in Nigeria that must attract the attention of the EFCC.
