Security operatives working in National Assembly Complex in the early hours of Tuesday arrested a three-man oil bunkering syndicate that specialise in breaking into the power house of the National Assembly and scoop diesels meant for the operation of the generating set.
Also arrested were two staff of the National Assembly, Ibrahim Shehu and Abubakar Umar who allegedly aid and abate the influx of the bunkerers and also assist to coordinate their smooth operations within the complex.
“Though the security operatives are doing their best to make sure they take charge of the complex, but there are some few elements that can penetrate the Assembly due to the porous nature of some broken entrances,” CSP Ajaponna explained.
She however assured the public that the suspects would be thoroughly interrogated and other accomplice within the National Assembly would be arrested and prosecuted.
The Suspects, Dan Azumi Abubakar, Suleiman Obere and Umar Isah were accosted by the JTF while trying to escape through the Villa gate after scooping 10 jerrycans of diesel from the power house.
While answering questions from journalists, the suspects confessed to the crime. According to them, the illegal oil business has been going on for some times now.
With the collaboration of one Mr. Friday Garba (at large), the suspects admitted that they were also at the National Assembly complex on Saturday when they successfully scooped 11 jerrycans of the diesel without being caught.
