The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Delta Command, has nabbed 11 suspected oil pipeline vandals in the state.


The Public Relations officer of the command, Emeka Peter, disclosed this in a press statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Asaba.


In the statement, the state commandant, Abiodun Iskilu, said that the alleged vandals, aged between 32 years and 66 years, were caught transporting vandalised crude oil pipes at Evurode in the Ughelli South Local Government Area.


He said that the suspects were handed over to the NSCDC by the operatives of Operation Delta Safe of the Nigeria Army due to the synergy and collaboration by both organisations.
