Atlas Cove shut down over an explosion

The Pipelines and Products Marketing Company has announced the closure of one of its network lines in the South West, as a result of an explosion. The explosion occurred as vandals tried to siphon petroleum products from the network, located at Arepo along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.  The explosion prompted the shutdown of the ‘System 2B Network,’ which is the channel pumping petroleum products from Atlas Cove in Lagos to other depots in the southwest region.
Although the Nigerian Police Force, the Nigerian Civil Defence Corps and the community’s vigilante monitor all pipelines passing through the area, it is difficult to provide security in the place because of its swampy nature.
