Mrs Folayinka Ayinde, 59, has been arrested and detained over her alleged role in vandalising NNPC pipeline in Isheri Olofin area, Lagos State. She allegedly connected a pipe inside her water well to
NNPC pipeline and had been using it to illegally siphon petrol for the past 3 years.
This happened at her house located at KML 1, LASU Road, Iyana Odo bus stop in Isheri Olofin, and was discovered by officers of the Anti-Vandalism Intelligence Unit Team B set up by IG of Police, Solomon Arase, following a tip-off.
Ayinde allegedly admitted that vandals had been operating in her house for the past 3 years and she reported to the NNPC officials but they did not do anything about it. She denied involvement in the act and said she made a mistake by not informing the police because she relied on NNPC official who asked her not to worry.
She revealed that the NNPC officials used to come with a team and she did not ask to know whether they were really officers or not. She might soon be flown to Abuja for further interrogation….. n a possible political appointment….. Cc: PMNewsNigeria
