“We received an alert Thursday evening and upon arrival, it was discovered that an NNPC pipeline along the axis at Ojukwu street, Navy Town was leaking.

“The agency and other first responders intend to remain on high alert until the repairs being carried out by NNPC are fully completed,” Oke-Osanyintolu said.
