Police Evacuate Oil Discovered At Wells In Residential Areas At Ilasamaja, Lagos

The police has started evacuating the contents of the illegal oil wells discovered in Lagos, South-western part of Nigeria.

The Operatives of Lagos state Police Command from Ilasamaja Division yesterday on a joint operation with staff of Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation evacuated oil discovered in water wells from Ibadan and Abeokuta Street, Ilasamaja, Lagos.

The evacuation followed a series of investigation and inspection by the police, NNPC officials and the Sole administration of the Isolo local government Honourable Bimbo Osikoya, after the police received a tip off that some residents in the area who first discovered the oil had turned it into a money making venture.

In fact, in one of the compounds where the oil was discovered, it is said that the woman actually connected a pumping machine after she discovered oil in the well that was originally dug for water, according to Moji Delano's blog.
