Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have nabbed a syndicate of six men involved in the mass production of engine oil at a factory sited along Marine Bridge Street in Apapa, Lagos State. The owner of the factory whose name was given as Emeka, reportedly took to his heels and escaped arrest when NSCDC officials stormed the location.
One of the arrested, Agu Ndubuisi, from Ebonyi State, narrated:
“I am one of the manufacturers at the factory. We produce about five drums per day. The oil is packaged inside four-litre jerrycans. But I don’t know the price for each.
“It is our boss, Emeka, that markets the product. He does not disclose the price to us. He gives me N8,000 per week. I just finished my secondary school and I intend to continue my education.”
