The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has confirmed the reports of a fire outbreak at Ogijo-Ilara near the Redeem Christian Church of God camp on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
According to the agency, unknown vandals broke the pipeline, attached their hose and stayed at a nearby creek to avoid getting caught.
Unfortunately for the fuel thieves, the pipeline caught fire leading to an alarm that brought NEMA officials and security agencies to scene. NEMA officials have put off the fire succesfully.
It would be recalled that a similar incident, happened in Ijegun area of Lagos State on March 15, 2014, Saturday. The fuel scarcity will never end if we go on like that.
