Pictures of a leaked an NNPC pipeline in Rivers State has surfaced on social media, and even worse people were seen scoping crude oil from the damaged pipeline.
A twitter user identified as Port Harcourt #1@phsabithetin took to his page to share pictures bring awareness to a leaked NNPC pipeline at Ibuluya/Dikibo Ama in Okrika LGA, River State.
His tweet reads:
There’s supposedly an NNPC pipeline leakage at IBULUYA/DIKIBO AMA in Okrika LGA.
They’re calling on all relevant authorities/stakeholders to come to their aide cos this is not the first time.
God forbid, we can’t afford to have a repetition of the ugly blast in Lagos state.

If we can recall, last month an explosion at a gas processing plant on Sunday killed at least 15 people and destroyed about 50 buildings after a fire broke out in a suburb of Lagos. It was triggered after a truck hit some gas cylinders stacked in a gas processing plant near the NNPC’s pipeline in Abule Ado area of Lagos state.
One would think that after the country experience the impact of such a horrible blast, the people would be more careful and NNPC would have stepped up to their safety measures to prevent such from happening again; Unfortunately that is not the case. The appropriate authorities need to look into this matter and prevent another devastating blast and loss of lives.
