Operatives of the National Security and Civil Defense Corps, (NSCDC) on Friday uncovered illegal fuel bunkering activities at a boundary between Mosan Okunola and Agbado/ Oke Odo Local Council Development Areas of Alimosho, a suburb of Lagos.

The operatives were led by NSCDC Commandant, Tajudeen Balogun to the site where it was discovered that some people had been siphoning petrol from a Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) pipeline across a river in the communities.

The pipeline was reportedly vandalised by a syndicate in the area.

Although, the suspected vandals had fled before the arrival of the operatives, but the law enforcement agents recovered some of their tools including long pipes and hose with which fuel is scooped from the vandalised pipeline.
