Special courts to try pipeline vandals in Nigeria

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, yesterday disclosed the decision of the federal government to set up a special court to try pipeline vandals in the country.
This was disclosed this at the end of a one-day summit for all State Publicity Secretaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, said the establishment of the special court to facilitate quick prosecution of vandals and saboteurs would also be backed by a decision for troop deployment to areas prone to pipeline vandalism.

Dr.Okupe said though the repairs on the vandalised and blown gas pipelines had commenced throughout the country in order to restore regular supply to the existing power plants and raise the power generated up to the targeted 7,000 mega watts, the war against vandals and saboteurs would be executed in line with the ongoing security action against insurgency and terrorism in some parts of the nation.
