UPDATE: Pipeline Leakage In Ijegun Lagos

The pipeline leakage which occurred on Wednesday the 27th day of February 2019 in Ijegun Lagos has been taken care of by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation(NNPC).

The residents of the area are calm and have gone back to their respective businesses.

In a conversation with some residents in the community, a resident said the leakage of the pipe in the area was not done by pipeline vandals but it happened when some NNPC engineers came to fix the pipes and during the course of doing so, it went out of hands and the fuel started spilling despite locking it from the source.

Another resident said security operatives, Lagos State Fire Service and some residents of the area did wonderfully well by staying on top of the situation. He went further saying, the security operatives have not been far from the scene in other to prevent any scooping in the area.

All our efforts to speak with security operatives on this incident was abortive.
