Just days after the Oodua People’s Congress (OPC) backed out from a government contract to secure the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) pipelines in the South-West, the Nigerian Army announced on Sunday, June 21, 2015, that it had taken over the security of the pipelines in Lagos, along with the Nigerian Navy, and craved the maximum cooperation of host communities.
Colonel Mustapha Anka, the Director, Army Public Relations, 81 Division of the Nigerian Army in Lagos, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Anka said the joint operation, code named: “Operation Awase,” was set up to tackle the vandalism of the NNPC pipelines in Majidun, Ikorodu and other parts of the state.
