Despite the festive season, air operations against criminals in the Niger Delta and other parts of the country continue unabated. 

On 23 December 2023, the Air Component of Operation Delta Safe, in continuation of efforts to rid the Niger Delta Region of activities of oil thieves and oil pipeline vandals, destroyed 6 illegal oil refining sites in Opu Arugbana in Degema Local Government Area of Rivers State.

According to Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Commodore Edward Gabkwet in a press statement signed and made available to SpyeTV News, the 6 illegal sites were sighted clustered within a radius of about 80 metres at a location about 6 nautical miles south of Opu Arugbana.

Gabkwet noted that having been confirmed to be active, authorization was obtained to destroy the 6 sites, thus discouraging the criminals from continuing with their acts of illegality. 

The Chief of Air Staff,  Air Marshal Hassan Abubakar, who spent the Christmas day with troops in the Northeast and currently in Katsina to fete troops of Operation Hadarin Daji, has commended the efforts of the Air Component Commanders in all the theatres of operation while calling on them not to rest until criminal activities are reduced to the barest minimum.
