    I can reliably inform us that whenever you see the Nigerian Navy act like this, or the JTC burning illegal refineries, just know that there was simply a misunderstanding between the criminals and them. Never make the mistake of thinking that they are just dicovering the illegal deals.

    I speak thus because I have seen things in Rivers State. Corruption has eaten very deep into this nation whether we admit it or not. The very first day I saw those illegal refineries, I was shocked beyond words. I saw guys, the engineers, walking about stark naked inside a thick bush where they sited their refinery. They were as black as a demon, I guess due to the heat they had to face daily, from the flames, the oils, as well as from the sun.

    Hundreds of buyers were coming coming with their vehicles to buy. It was just a very busy place. Real hustle and bustle. The interesting par of it now is that the JTF, the men of civil defence, and some other policemen station themselves at intervals, collecting money from every costumer going or coming. The main guys that do the deals pay their dues as well. It is only when those guys fail to meet up with their own side of the bargain that you hear that the JTF struck. Meanwhile they have been eatin and wiping their mouths.
