Operatives of the Nigerian Navy (NN) have uncovered a hotel used to syphon petroleum products at Abule Egba in Lagos on Wednesday following a tip-off by residents of the community.

It was gathered that the operatives stormed the premises and found that pipes were connected from the hotel rooms directly to the pipeline and a well, which they used as a reserve.

Tankers were said to have frequented the community where they load the stolen product smuggled to Benin-Republic and other neighbouring countries.
