Lagos- The Police Special Task Force on Anti-Pipeline Vandalism says it  arrested four foreigners, including a woman, for allegedly attempting to vandalise pipeline in Lagos.

Friday Ibadin, an Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of the task force, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Sunday.

Those arrested are a Ghanaian and three citizens of the Republic of Benin, adding: "we are on the trail of one of their ring leaders.’’
