It was gathered that the suspects were arrested by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police Special Taskforce on Anti-Pipeline Vandalism on Friday in the Isolo area of the state, after they had allegedly stolen 33,000 litres of stolen fuel from a pipeline that belonged to Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC,  in the Ijegun area.
Jibril said the truck conveying the products belonged to his older brother, identified as Rasheed Adewale.
