Several persons have been reportedly injured while attempting to scoop fuel from a broken pipeline at Dagbo-Pogo community in Niger State on Sunday.

It was gathered that farmlands and houses belonging to more than 20 villages around the substation were razed.

However, nobody died in the incident, Channels TV reports.

Firefighters were, however, seen battling to put out the blaze that erupted from the vandalised pipeline belonging to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

Also, officers of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), the police as well as that of the Niger State Emergency Management Agency (NISEMA) were at the scene of the incident.

As at press time, tankers were being evacuated to prevent an escalation of the situation.
