The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) has paraded suspected pipeline vandals in Agip Gas Plant, Kwale in Delta State.
The Delta State Commandant of the NSCDC, Beatrice Irabor, who paraded the suspects at the command’s headquarters in Asaba, said they were nabbed in Ndokwa West Local Government Area of the southern Nigeria state.
She said the vandals arrived on speedboats before engaging officers of the NSCDC which led to the injuring of some of the vandals while others escaped through waters.
Items recovered during the operation include gas cylinders, cutters and generators among others.
The suspects, however, denied being involved in the alleged vandalism.
The NSCDC Commandant said they would be prosecuted.
