As the fight against illegal refining of crude oil in Rivers State continues, residents have expressed concerns about the sustainability of the fight and the possibility of completely bringing the menace to a halt.

These concerns come days after a fire incident on Wednesday, February 16, 2022 in Ibaa community of Emohua Local Government Area. The fire outbreak which destroyed properties and has left families homeless, was said to have been caused by a truck carrying illegally refined petroleum products in nylon bags.

Reacting to this on Nigeria Info’s Morning Crossfire, a caller told Enoh Ogbevire that he still sees illegally refined products being transported in some parts of the state.

He said he is convinced that the initial intensity used in the fight against activities of illegal oil refiners was “initial gra gra”, and the fight would yield more results if the ‘sacred cows’ who are also part of the illegal activity are brought to book.

Another caller likened ‘kpofire’ to terrorism.

Watch him explain here:
