Pipeline vandals at the Arepo area of Ogun State, today [Sept. 16] killed 10 operatives of the Department of State Security Service (DSS).
THISDAY gathered that the vandals had already vandalised one of the NNPC pipelines in the area and were siphoning fuel, when the DSS operatives stormed there.
It is however yet unclear how the vandals knew the DSS operatives were coming, as they used element of surprise to overcome them.
When the gun duel ended, the bodies of the operatives littered the area and as at press time, their operational vehicle is still there.
THISDAY checks also revealed that the DSS has already involved the services of the Armed Forces in Lagos as reinforcement.
