LASG Seeks Collaboration to End Pipeline Vandalism
By Maureen Ogolor
The Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr. Kadri Obafemi Hamzat today called for collaboration among the relevant stakeholders on how to end the incessant vandalisation of pipelines in the State.
Speaking at Abule Egba, where another explosion occurred last Sunday, the Deputy Governor, accompanied by some state officials, said such collaboration has become imperative, in view of lost lives and properties occasioned by the handiwork of vandals, whose activities can bring tears and sorrows to the people of Lagos State.
According to him, Lagos State Government, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, and relevant security agencies must put in place, measures that would deter these criminals from perpetuating their evils.
While expressing his displeasure on act of vandalism, he called on the residents to be more vigilant by reporting any suspected moves by the vandals to the appropriate authorities before they carry out their evil acts.
