Oil Pipeline Burnt Down In Delta 24 Hours After Osinbajo’s Visit

Barely 24 hours after the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbanjo, visited Delta State, gunmen suspected to be militants have set ablaze a crude oil pipeline at Ughelli.

The pipeline belonging to the Niger Petroleum Development Company, NPDC, located behind the SETRACO construction yard, along the East/West express road, was seen raging with inferno at about 4:30p.m.

The real cause of the inferno is still sketchy at the moment but residents say the latest attack might not be unconnected with the activities of the Niger Delta militants.

According to Vanguard, a security source, operating in the area, refuted insinuation that the inferno was as a result of an attack by suspected militants.

He said: “The cause of the incident is as a result of bush burning. Someone set fire on the area and the pipeline, which had some crude oil spill on it and the surrounding environment went up in flames, sending huge balls of flame into the air.”.

Speaking further, the source said: “We are ensuring the maximum protection of oil and gas facilities in the area and I can assure you that there would be no form of attacks on oil facilities in the area like time past.”

 Osinbajo, during his visit to the oil-rich region, admitted that the Niger Delta area had long been abandoned.‎



  1. So which was it armed militant or bush burning? What a way to make a statement regarding his if he did not visit he did not know the niger delta has long been abandoned abi...even foreigners who have not been to Nigeria know this

  2. Hmmmm
    I am waiting for them to exhaust all their heavy petting. I believe it's only then their eyes go clear wella.
    There is just one way to deal with these vagabonds.

  3. Niger deltans don't know air pollution kills. Illiterates everywhere.

  4. Senseless youths everywhere u go. Little wonder we re still being governed by aged n dieing men.

  5. Better, even in my community most of the pipelines has been destroyed. How can Niger Delta be producing oil that makes the Northerners rich and then no single development in our area?

    1. U no get sense, whose environment dey experience destruction, the northerners? Stupid people killing themselves .

    2. Mr sense , lets suffer the poverty together.

  6. Stella if u like swwllow my comment again, thats ur lastest hobby now.

  7. Senselessness at its peak! Niger delta should continue to destroy their lands thinking they are getting back at the government that does not care about them. Keep destroying everything destroyable while the government will continue to use your available resources to develop the north.

  8. Well it means the meeting didn't go well
