The Onijegun of Ijegun, a traditional ruler in Lagos State, Nureni Akinremi, said on Thursday that he had set up preventive campaigns to forestall further pipeline explosion in the community.
The traditional ruler said in an interview in Lagos that his council had also set up campaign teams to dislodge residents close to the pipeline areas in Ijegun.
"We want to make sure that there will no longer be a fire outbreak in Ijegun. That is why we have sent out our men to talk to these people on the risk of remaining in such areas," he said. He observed that though such residents had been given several notices to vacate the area, they remained adamant.
"We shall ensure, by all means, that there would be no further fire explosion in Ijegun with our combined efforts, it will be a reality," Mr. Akinremi promised. He, however, dissociated his people from the recent pipeline vandalisation in nearby Ijeododo community.
