Lagos: Army, NSCDC Uncover Illegal Oil Well at Winners Chapel


- Advertisment -

The Nigerian Army and officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC has uncovered another illegal oil well in Lagos State.

This came barely two weeks after the Police and other security agencies discovered about 10 houses on Ibadan and Abeokuta streets in Ilasamaja axis of the state, where dug wells were linked to oil pipelines through which diesel was siphoned.
Vanguard gathered that the supposedly dug well, filled with Petroleum Motor Spirit, PMS, (petrol) was discovered last Thursday within the premises of Winners Satellite Church, Iyana-Odo, Igando-Ikotun Local Council Development Area, LCDA.
The resident pastor, Oladela Paul, told the NSCDC Lagos Commandant, Tajudeen Balogun, who led the operation, that the church had sent a formal complaint to Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, when they noticed the well was filled with PMS.
He lamented that months after writing the NNPC, the Church was yet to get any response from the Corporation, adding “the well has become a source of harassment to the church and our members.”
Aside the harassment, we are afraid of the impending hazard which we cannot determine.” Confirming the discovery, Balogun in a statement made available to vanguard by NSCDC Public Relation Officer, PRO, Kehinde Bada, said “the visit is to evaluate the extent of the spillage and take necessary actions.”
