Pipeline Vandalism: IPMAN Urges FG To Bring Perpetrators To Book

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) in the South-West has urged the Federal Government to bring to book the perpetrators who vandelised a pipeline at Idimu in Lagos on Sunday.

The Chairman, IPMAN, South-West, Dele Tajudeen, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) in Ibadan on Sunday.

He noted that Idimu was one of the routes where the pipeline to Lagos Satellite Depot was laid.  He also noted that all the five depots, Lagos Satellite Depot, Mosimi Depot, Ilorin Depot, Ibadan Depot and Ore Depot had been moribund for upward of five years.

According to him, some of the depots had not functioned for between 10 and 15 years as a result of the vandalism of pipelines by criminals.

The South-West IPMAN Chairman said security operatives nabbed some people siphoning fuel from the Ejigbo pipeline on two occasions.

As he praised the Rapid Response Squad of the Nigerian Police Force and other security agencies operating in the state for their steadfastness, he however urged the Federal Government to treat cases of oil theft and vandalism with the seriousness  they deserved as they amounted to economic sabotage.

He said the prosecution of suspects would serve as a deterrent to other criminally minded people.
