Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, on Friday set up a task force to check the activities of illegal crude oil refineries to protect the environment in Bayelsa state.
Mr Dickson, who lamented the exclusion of the people in the oil and gas industry decried the establishment of illegal refineries in the state which degrade the environment and destroy lives.
He also said there was no justification for illegal refineries stressing that doing so would amount to further further degrading and polluting the already compromised environment.
