How I left Bayelsa for oil bunkering in Lagos — Suspect
A 27-year-old father of five, Adeyemi Smart, has narrated how he left Bayelsa State to participate in last week’s pipeline vandalisation that led to an explosion that killed two people at Baruwa/Idimu area of Lagos State.
The suspect told the police that 10 of them took part in the operation and that only four of them actually punctured the pipeline, while six others were only loading the operational truck of the gang with the stolen product.
Smart said he agreed to take part in the operation in order to raise money to take care of his wife who just put to bed.
