Monarchs warn on Lagos pipeline vandals

The Alahu of Imore and Apapa, Oba Taofeeq Adegboye and and Onilashe of Ilashe, Oba Fatai Akinwumi have challenged security agents in Lagos State on pipeline vandalism which they asked the agents to bring to a halt.

The traditional rulers, who made this call while speaking to journalists, disclosed that the activities of pipeline vandals in the state was having negative effect on the nation’s economy.

Adegboye explained that he and his colleagues in riverine communities in Amuwo Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos were ready to lend a helping hand to security agents to end pipeline vandalism.

“I have adopted a system that does not encourage vandalism.  If you ask the security agents patrolling around waterways, they can attest to this.

“There is no inhabitant of my community that will engage in such because they know that such person will be arrested and handed over to security operatives,” he said.
