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.

He, however, said  luck ran against one of the suspects as he was apprehended by another surveillance team on routine patrol.

``The suspects were pursued and one of them was arrested at gun point on Ajede road ,Ogbere.

``In the cause of our investigation, it was discovered that the suspects were members of  a gang and he took our investigators to the Ola Oluwa camp site of the gang near a NNPC pipeline.

`` That was where we met and arrested the other suspect, `` he said.

The spokesman said items recovered from the suspects included  two dane guns and 325 litres of  petrol loaded in a car.

Other items, he said, were  25  empty kegs, an unmarked motor cycle, one Hyundai car with registration number Lagos AS 745 SMK and one pumping machine.
