Stolen Crude Oil Are Found in Church, Mosque - NNPC
Nigeria is one of the countries where natural resources are converted to individuals business or property and this made the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited to accuse religious leaders, security agencies, and even some NNPC staff of the theft of the nation’s crude oil.
The NNPC Group Chief Executive Officer, Kyari said this during the 49th session of the weekly ministerial brief at the State House in Abuja, stressing that oil theft is largely carried out by Nigerians.
Kyari disclosed that the stolen products, pipelines are found mostly in churches and mosques, Channels Tv reported.
“When a fire outbreak happened in one of our pipelines, we discovered that some of the pipelines were actually connected to individual’s homes. And not only that, and with all sensitivity to our religious beliefs, you know, some of the pipelines and some of the products that we found, are actually in churches and in mosques,” Kyari said.

Everybody includes members of the community, members of the religious leaders and also and most likely government officials of all natures, including security agencies personnel.”
