NNPC is Destroying Illegal Structures on Pipeline

After the Ugly Incident in Arepo Area of Lagos, the NNPC (Nigerian National  Petroleum Commission) has taken a step further by making sure all Illegal  Structures on The Pipeline is destroyed, The exercise started last month (February 2013) where different Structures on the pipeline worth millions of Naira are brought down with Bulldozers in Conjuction with the Nigerian Army to make sure the process goes smoothly.

The funny part of this story is that before your building is bulldozed, The Army will force you to bring down part of the structure before they finally crush it down with their heavy duty vehicles. This has been a very difficult time for many as they were given less than 24 hours to evacuate.

Under the Nigerian law, Every building should be One Hundred feet (100 feet) distance from the pipeline, this development came as a shock to many because the notice was short, but other claimed they've been warned and given notices over 8 years ago.

This development has rendered many hopeless as these pipeline has been turned to a residential house, markets, stores, Churches, Mosques and several business ventures.

The operations which started at Arepo has which led to properties worth millions of Naira destroyed or pulled down has extended to Akute Area of Ogun State and spreading towards Alagbole to fagba in Iju.

Please note if you properties located in these areas on the Pipeline, immediate evacuation would be advised
