A fresh pipeline explosion which occurred on Monday at Gloryland Community in Isheri – Olofin, Egbe – Idimu LCDA of Lagos state has been linked to the activities of vandals

This is coming two days after a similar incident which occurred on Friday was put out.

Speaking on behalf of Gloryland Community, the General Secretary of Gloryland CDA, Mr. Olarenwaju Jimoh called on the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, and Lagos State Government to save their lives and property from vandals operating in the area.

Noting that the Community had been experiencing the incident for over two years, the community leader appealed to the authorities of NNPC and State Government to provide a twenty- four hour security surveillance on the pipelines in order to apprehend the vandals.

Mr Jimoh added that the frequency of the explosions and fire outbreaks had crippled the social and economic activities of the residents, who now live in fear.

The Lagos State Emergency Management (LASEMA), Security Operatives and officials of NNPC have restored normalcy to areas affected by fire outbreak around Odo Iya Dada Street, Iyana Odo Bus Stop, Igando in Alimosho Local Government Area.
