The vandalism occurred in the early hours of Friday, August 27, and residents woke up to see PMS gushing out of the NNPC pipeline.
The PMS has been flowing into drainage channels and, to prevent a fire outbreak, residents have been advised not to cook or put on any form of fire for the next few hours.
They have also been advised to avoid smoking to avoid reigniting a fire as PMS has leaked onto the streets.
