The Ogun Command of the Nigeria  Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) yesterday said  it had arrested two suspected pipeline vandals on Ajede Road in Ijebu East Local Government Area of the state.

The Command's spokesman, Kareem Olanrewaju, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Abeokuta that the suspects were aged  35 and  55.

'The suspects were operating with guns along side with others now at large.

'Our surveillance team deployed to monitor the  activities of  vandals around the place relayed the information but the suspects took off before the arrival of the combat team,'' he said.

He, however, said  luck ran against one of the suspects ' who took our investigators to the Ola Oluwa camp site of the gang near a NNPC pipeline, where we met and arrested the other suspect, ' he said.
