The Director of Media and Publicity of Oodua
People’s Congress, (OPC) led by Otunba Gani
Adams, Barrister Yinka Oguntimehin, has
condemned the gruesome killing of 10 members of
State Security Operatives by pipeline vandals in
Isawo, Ikorodu , Lagos state.
Oguntimehin in a release made available to the
media in Lagos on Thursday described the action
of the vandals as “highly condemnable” and
“brazen in its criminality which is injurious to the
national psyche only perpetrated by sub – human
beings who are not fit to live.”
He lamented that, “it is sad that some miscreants
who are being financed by a sinisterly powerful
and deadly oil mafia have put paid to the lives and
brilliant carriers of 10 wondrous well trained
members of the Department of State Security
Services.”
Oguntimehin pointed out that the death of those
men of honour at the point of service in such a
gruesome circumstance was a pointer to the fact
that the war against pipeline vandals is not a tea
party’s affair which can be taken or approached
with kid’s glove
“The death of the bright DSS operatives though sad
and sorrowful is a testimony to the fact that the war
against pipeline vandals and protection of our
common wealth should not be localized within the
confine of the regular security agents alone “
“This unfortunate event should kindled our sense
of perception and reasoning and task patriotic
feeling in us to always treat national issues without
sentiment.”
He charged the Federal government that it, ”must
realized that oil pipeline vandalism has grown from
being a past time of petty and tiny miscreants of
the society, it is has assumed an organized high
level criminality dimension being controlled by
powerful and blood tasting mafia who cannot not
be dislodged solely by the regular security
agencies.”
Mr Oguntimehin suggested that “it is high time for
the Federal government to stop being mono focal
in its effort at putting a stop to the activities of
vandals with the regimentation to the belief that
only the regular trained security agencies can do it.

He pointed out that, “The recent , three months
monitoring of the pipeline by private groups has
proved to all that the engagement of the so called
irregular or the socio – cultural groups brought
modicum of stability and sanity to pipeline
vandalism. This is a pointer to the fact that the war
against pipeline vandalism should not be restricted
to the regular armed forces.”
“As it is , the Federal government should confront
this dare devilry act of pipeline vandalism by
involving both the regular armed agencies and the
socio-cultural groups which have been tried and
successfully monitored the pipelines without major
calamity and waste of human resources like this.”
He therefore called on the Federal government to
set up a dual joint action task force which should
include the regular security agencies and the socio-
cultural group to combat the deadly activities of
pipeline vandals in Nigeria.
Barrister Oguntimehin while commiserating with
the Nation over the death of the DSS operatives
tasked the security agencies to fish out the
perpetrators of the gruesome murder.
