2 Indians arrested for vandalising pipeline

23 January 2013, 09:05

Lagos - The Special Task Force on Anti-Pipeline Vandalism Unit, said it arrested two Indians and three others for allegedly vandalising NNPC pipeline.

Mr Friday Ibadin, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), in charge of the task force, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Lagos.

Ibadin said the police got intelligence report that some vandals were transporting stolen crude oil from Okene to their buyers in Osun.

The ACP explained that the Ore Sector Commander, DSP Xpress Omoigui and his men, were sent to the area for regular patrol.

Ibadin said that during one of the patrol sessions, they trailed some trucks to Prism Steel Company based in Osun.

He said the suspects were picked up at Osogbo on Jan. 13, shortly after the Indians allegedly took delivery of two truck load of suspected stolen crude oil from NNPC pipeline.

``The suspects were identified, including those alleged to be their suppliers. We also impounded the two trucks,'' he said.

The ACP said that the suspects would soon be charged to court at the end of the investigation, adding that police were trailing the major marketers receiving the stolen products.
