According to residents of the community,
some men who disguised as officials of the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
(NNPC), came into their community on
Tuesday July 12th pretending to carry out
repairs on the gas pipeline. After they left, a
loud explosion was heard from the gas
pipeline later at night, causing members of
the community to run for safety.
The affected pipeline is said to serve an 11.4
distribution line for some companies in
Ikorodu, Lagos state. Commenting on the
attack, the divisional police officer (DPO) of
Ogijo police station, Mohammed Tijani, said
investigation into the attack is ongoing.
