The Military Joint Task Force, Operation PULO Shield in Calabar has denied a purported plan to sell seized petroleum products and trucks stating that the paid advert in the Nation of January 28, 2014, was aimed at duping unsuspecting members of the public.

The Commander, Maj.-Gen Iliyasu Abbah, in a statement on Sunday said the JTF should not be linked with such publication, warning Nigerians not to respond to the claims.

“Some syndicated miscreants yet to be identified dubiously published in the Nation newspaper that JTF is embarking on sale of petroleum products and trucks. These unscrupulous elements are bent on swindling the public.

“The Joint Task Force is not connected to such advertorial. The general public should therefore be informed that the advert is false and a figment of mere imagination of the publishers to dupe the general public. Nigerians are advised to disregard the advert placed by the syndicated criminals.”

Abbah reassured Nigerians that the Task Force would continue to uphold its constitutional mandate of curbing illegal oil bunkering, crude oil theft, pipeline vandalism and other acts of criminality that debilitate the socio-economic life of Nigerians.

He pledged that the Joint Task Force Operation PULO SHIELD would continue to maintain zero tolerance for illegalities in the Niger Delta region.
