Lagos police command uncovers culprits behind the Abule-Egba fire explosion

A fire explosion that saw over 100 houses, 100 shops and over 50 cars totally destroyed at the Abule-Egba area of  Lagos in an alleged vanderlization by pipeline bandits was investigated, with the police announcing it has been able to uncover the culprits behind the tragic event which occurred on December 19th. 
In a statement released by the police command spokesperson, CSP Chike Oti, said four suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident. 

The suspects accepted to be involved in the pipeline vanderlizatiom as during interrogation,  four of them gave vivid account of how the fire that emanated from a vandalised petroleum pipe, engulfed a fraction of Abule-Egba community and escalated to parts of Agege area, destroying properties worth millions of Naira. They also mentioned one Hon(Amb) Prince Adedipo  Dauda Ewenla as their ring leader.

Based on this, the Command extended invitation to him at his last known address but found out that he has fled to Ogun state in order to evade arrest.

 However, the police has asked the accused to turn himself in or report to any nearby police station to defend the accusations against him.
