Lagos - Fuel supply at four depots of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) may be exhausted in a matter of days as a result of the continued closure of System 2B pipeline at Arepo village, report New Telegraph.
The affected depots are located in Mosinmi in Ogun State, Ibadan in Oyo State, Ore in Ondo State and Ilorin in Kwara State
The depots have not received supply for four days when the pipeline was shutdown as a result of a fire incident sparked off by a gun battle between suspected oil thieves and policemen deployed to protect the pipeline.
It is not clear yet when the pipeline will be reopened as fire is still raging because some volumes of fuel are trapped in the pipeline.
