Let me appeal to all law abiding citizen to continue to support Operation DELTA SAFE operational activities with valuable information.

All hands must be on deck to frustrate the activities of economic saboteurs. Let me also advise the sponsors and operators of illegal refineries to desist from the economic sabotage which begets environmental pollution and other social problems. Our troops would not relent until our mandate is achieved.
