“The suspected stolen oil products, amount up to about seven hundred and sixty thousand, five hundred naira only in the estimate,” said Ayodeji.

The NSCDC Lagos Command Commandant, Eweka Edenabu Okoro, immediately ordered the Anti-vandal unit of the Command to evacuate the suspected products back to the Lagos State Command, Head Quarters, in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, in a bid, to carry out further intelligent investigation on the matter and find a lasting solution to such ugly economic sabotage in the area and the State in general.

Okoro has also directed that the security of lives and property and the protection of Critical National Assets and Infrastructure (CNAI ), in the Badagry Division and other oil pipeline areas, in the State be continuously beefed up especially, now since it remains a few months to the end of the year, where some citizens may want to exhibit their desperation for illicit money at all cost, against the patriotic and collective development of the nation’s economy.

Okoro also seized the occasion of this excellent and gallant operation, to further reiterate the Command’s readiness and commitment to ensuring a zero-tolerance against oil pipeline vandalism and other forms of criminality in the State.

He further assured the good people of Lagos and the Government of the State, of his unflinching commitment and dedication to sustaining the already established peace and security in the State.

He promised that the Corps will continue to work assiduously and laboriously, with the Government and other security services or agencies and stakeholders in the State, to further proffer solutions to any form of security challenges that may want to raise their ugly heads, especially now and during the last quarter of the year 2022.
