Troops arrest 19 pipeline vandals in Niger Delta, foil attack on Agip oilline

The joint military force deployed to protect oil installations in the Niger Delta, have arrested 19 pipeline vandals in several operations in May and June 2016 and also foiled an attack on an Agip oilfield at Okpoma community in Bayelsa state.

A statement by the spokesman of the force, Col. Isa Ado, states that the suspected vandals had dug and planted dynamites beneath the pipeline location in a swamp for detonation before the troops foiled the sabotage operation. Two dynamite detonators, cable wire and battery were recovered from the vandals.
