LWC urges security agencies to arrest water pipe vandals
The Lagos Water Corporation (LWC) has decried the mass looting of water pipes at the Ishasi major waterworks.
In a statement on Friday in Lagos, the LWC Managing Director, Muminu Badmus, appealed to security agencies to help in recovering the stolen pipes.
“The World Bank and state government funded and procured water pipes of different sizes, according to current market value estimated at about one billion naira.
“All these were carted away by unknown persons and all efforts to identify and arrest the culprits proved abortive.
“Twelve loaded trucks of water pipes ranging from 2000mm, 1500mm, 900mm, 600mm, 500mm, 450mm to 400mm diameters and six heavy duty cranes Hiab vehicle left the four Million Gallons per Day (MGD), Ishasi waterworks pipes yard.
“These carted away pipes were meant for the distribution of water to the residents of Ishasi and environs,” he said.
Mr Badmus pleaded with security operatives in the state to assist the corporation in retrieving the water pipes, as no permission was granted for the removal of the items.
