Ogun - The Ogun Command of the Nigeria  Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on Wednesday said  it had arrested two suspected pipeline vandals on Ajede road in Ijebu East Local Government Area of the state.

The command’s spokesman, Kareem Olanrewaju, told  the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta that the suspects were aged  35 and  55.

 ``The suspects were operating with guns along side with others now at large.

``Our surveillance team deployed to monitor the  activities of  vandals around the place relayed the information but the suspects took off before the arrival of the combat team, ‘’ he said.
