It was gathered that as soon as the vandalisation was noticed, Lagos State Emergency Management Agency LASEMA, was said to have alerted Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation NNPC, to shut down its source  thereby averting a major disaster.

LASEMA Director General Femi Oke-Osanyintolu who confirmed the development to Vanguard said the development has led to prohibition of use of fire in the affected areas just as officials of the Agency and other stakeholders are on standby.
