WARRI â€” VILLAGERS have reported multiple leakages on NNPC/Nigeria Gas Company, NGC, Escravos gas pipeline at Azama, Opuedebubor and Oporoza communities in Gbaramatu Kingdom, Delta State.
Secretary-General of Opuedebubor community, Mr. Mike Itima, who alerted Vanguard, said the leakages at several points on the gas pipeline were observed since last week.
He said, â€œplease, we want quick response on this because it is affecting human lives in the environment.â€
One of the villagers who spoke to Vanguard on the multiple leakages, said the gas pipeline was buried inside the water, adding that it was already polluting their environment.
â€œWe thank God that it is inside the water, if not, anything could happen, and the people can be wiped away,â€ he said.
Efforts to get comments from the NGC in Warri failed, as non of the officials could be reached on the telephone.
