Suspected militants blow up gas pipeline in Ogun

Suspected Niger Delta militants have blown up a gas pipeline in PZ Estate, in Ogijp area of Ogun State.
They were said to have attacked the gas installation while disguising to be officials of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, late Tuesday, Channels Television reports.

According to the report, the affected pipeline serves as a distribution line for some companies in Ikorodu, Lagos state.

However none of the rampaging militant groups that have owned up to several attacks on oil pipelines in the Niger Delta region have claimed responsibility for this attack, which is the first in the South West.

Confirming the attack, the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, of Ogijp police station, Mohammed Tijani, said investigations into the incident were ongoing.

“What we heard is that during the day, some people disguised as NNPC staff. They reportedly came with two Hilux vehicles and pretended as if they carried out some repairs.

“Later at night, the explosion occurred,” he said.
