The command’s Public Relations Officer, Dyke Ogbonnaya, who spoke to newsmen in Abeokuta, disclosed that the incident has been reported to the NNPC.
He further reiterated the command’s anti-vandal team’s commitment to combat vandalism, as he spoke on the exploits of die-hard vandals, euphemism for oil thieves in the state.

The State Commandant, Everestus Obiyo, who earlier this week had read riot act on vandalism , warned that youths should desist from all acts capable of bringing their lives at stake and all forms of crime.
