A statement from the managing director of Nigerian Gas Company, Emmanuel Olukogum, said that the pipeline was suspected to have been blown up. He assured, however, that the company was making efforts to ensure that the impact of the attack was minimal.
A similar incident occurred in early April, when unknown people blew up a pipeline that supplies crude oil from Escravos to two refineries in Warri in the Niger in the Niger Delta, and Kaduna in the north. The two refineries have remained shut since then. The NNPC has been unable make repairs due to blocked access by local residents.
