Petroleum Corporation pipeline in the Obafemi/ Owode Local Government Area of

vandals.

arrested and arraigned three times, but was discharged and acquitted.

“This is the fourth time Junaid
will be arrested by the police.We are still on the trail of his accomplices
who managed to escape. We will again take him to court and we hope that he will
get what he deserves this time around.”

Read Doctor’s statement to the police below:

 “After I regained my freedom in 2012, I stopped
anything that has to do with pipeline vandalism.
“I am an active member of a political party in this state
(Lagos). So, when the slot for the House of Representatives was zoned to my
area, my people nominated me to represent them. Since I know that I had a good
chance of winning the election, I accepted. I was told to go and look for money
to sponsor my campaigns.
“In the course of looking for funds, a friend of mine, Oloje, who is also a
vandal, informed me that the area was calm, and that I could come and lift some
fuel and get money for my political ambition.
“I was waiting with my tankers to lift the product when policemen arrested me.
My enemies, who are bitter that I was anointed for the political position,
betrayed me. Please forgive me and give me another chance. I am sorry and I
promise that as soon as I am elected, I will assist the police in the war
against pipeline vandalism.”
Juniad said a full tanker could be
bought for N1.5m from vandals and sold for N3m.Junaid, who claimed to be
veterinary doctor, said he was first arrested and arraigned in court in 2008.
“I was discharged and acquitted in
2010. I was also arrested at Epe in 2010 and after several months, I regained
my freedom again. The third time was in 2012, when policemen from FESTAC
division arrested and arraigned me in court. I was able to secure my freedom
yet again.”
