07 August 2014, 08:15Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Youths in Bayelsa State have been charged to desist from pipeline vandalism.

The State Commissioner for Environment,  Iniruo Wills, gave the charge during a meeting between the Ministry of Environment and officials of the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency (NOSDRA).

Wills condemned the spate of vandalism in the state and described it as inhumane.

He called on NOSDRA to relocate its headquarters from Abuja to any of the oil producing states for more effective collaboration.

The Zonal Director of NOSDRA, Cyrus Nkangwu, solicited the support of the Ministry in carrying out enlightenment campaigns to host communities on the dangers of oil spill on the environment.

Nkangwu noted that the visit would strengthen the existing relationship between NOSDRA and the State Ministry of Environment in effective oil spill management and joint monitoring to ensure compliance with existing environmental laws in the part of oil operators in the zone.
