The Nigerian Navy Ship Beecroft has discovered and halted the siphoning of petrol from an oil pipeline at Atlas Cove, Lagos belonging to the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited.

The Commander, NNS BEECROFT, Commodore Kolawole Oguntuga, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday by the command’s spokesperson, Sub. Lt. Happiness Collins.

He said the activities of the fuel thieves were halted on Wednesday.

“The thieves connected hoses and suction pumps to vandalised parts of the pipeline to steal petrol.

“After halting their activities, the NNPCL was alerted and repairs on the vandalised parts of the pipeline have gone underway.

“Efforts are ongoing to detect and rectify other potential vulnerabilities along the pipeline to ensure a comprehensive approach to deter future illegal activities,’’ he said.

Oguntuga noted that the activities of economic saboteurs posed a significant threat to petroleum products availability and to the nation’s economic well-being.
