The Anti-Vandalism Squad of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Oyo State Command, on Thursday, impounded a blue DAF Truck loaded with 33,000 litres of petroleum product belonging to Ibrolak Nigeria Limited, which was allegedly intended for diversion.
The squad, stationed at Kishi in Irepodun Local Government Area impounded the truck with registration number APP 429 XV at about 7:20 pm on Kishi-Kaiama road, towards the Kaiama community in Kwara State.
The State Commandant of NSCDC, Michael Adaralewa made this known during a briefing with the Agro Rangers team at the command headquarters, Agodi, Ibadan.
In a statement issued by the NSCDC Public Relations Officer, Oluwole Olusegun, the Commandant stated that the truck was impounded due to a fake weigh bill and interstate documents presented, which was illegal.
The PRO said that the truck had been impounded at the Kishi Divisional office of the NSCDC, pending the completion of an investigation about the product and the owner.
Adaralewa, who said the Command would not tolerate any form of criminality, gave a warning to those who specialised in illegal dealings and diversion of petroleum products to desist or face the wrath of the law.
He advised youths against lawlessness, jungle justice, drugs, crime and criminality, just as he told those in the habit of selling petroleum products, such as AGO and PMS, in residential buildings in Ibadan to stop the act, as anybody caught would be dealt with.
“It is better you change and do things right than to be caught and go to jail,” he said.
He sought more credible information from the public in order to stem the tide of insecurity in the state.
