From Matthew Aramunde, Lagos

Nine suspected oil pipeline vandals and adulterators are now in the custody of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The Lagos state Commandant, Mr. Ikemefuna Donatus Izuka, said the suspects were arrested on November 6, at Amuwo Odofin, Festac area of the metropolis.

Izuka said that the products were intercepted in three trucks.

The commandant added that NSCDC, which is saddled with the responsibility of monitoring and protecting the oil installations, would do it to the best of its ability.

Izuka decried the unwholesome practice of the perpetrators, who he described as ‘economic saboteurs’.

According to him, they appeared determined to cripple the country’s economy.

He said: “I wonder why somebody will risk spending 21 years in jail for illegal dealing in petroleum products.”

The commandant said that the case was still under investigation.
