ABEOKUTA – A 45-years old suspected vandal was on Sunday found dead in a deep pipeline of Petroleum Motor Spirit (PMS) at the Ogijo axis of Ogun State.
According to the Public Relations Officer of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Ogun State command, Dyke Ogbonnaya, the deceased was found during the regular routine patrol exercises and check-ups by the men of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps NSCDC Ogun Command along the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC’s) Right of Way/ Pipeline at Gbaga axis of Ogijo in Ogun State.
Ogbonnaya said, “the lone deceased vandal, by name Musa Oladipupo was 45 years old and a native of Oyo state, was found in the middle of Petroleum Motor Spirit (PMS) deep down in the pipeline. The Anti-Vandal team on regular routine patrol recovered an empty 30 litres keg and a funnel from the deceased vandal.
“While the command’s Anti-Vandal team pledges total onslaught on the acts of vandalism, the command had also made immediate report to the NNPC over this unfortunate incidence and escapades of die-hard vandals in the state.”
The State Commandant, Everestus Chimezie Obiyo, had last week read a riot act against vandalism, urging youths should desist from all acts capable of bringing their life at stake and all forms of crime.
He also charged parents to be more responsible in their core duty of proper parenting to avoid these sorts of acts that demeans one’s family name.
