Some unknown gunmen have stormed Shell facilities at Obiakpu-Egbema in Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area of Imo State and set it on fire.
 
Tribune reported that the incident occurred late Friday. The inferno destroyed both oil pipes that supply oil to other locations and other equipment.
 
The destruction attracted the attention of the Special Adviser to the Governor of Imo State on Oil and Gas, Hon. Goodluck Nanah Opia, who visited the scene in the company of officials of Nigeria Petroleum Development Company, (NDP), and Fire Service personnel.
 
The former Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly and former House of Representatives member, who represented Ohaji/Egbema, Oguta and Oru West Federal Constituency expressed regret over the destruction of the facilities by hoodlums.
