Nigerian Army uncover Illegal oil well within Winners church premises

An illegal oil well has been uncovered within the premises of popular Winners satellite church, Iyana-Odo, Igando-Ikotun local council development area, Lagos state. According to Vanguard, the oil well was discovered by the Nigerian army and officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC),.

According to the resident pastor, Oladela Paul, the church had sent a formal complaint to Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) when they noticed the well within the church premise was filled with Petroleum Motor Spirit. He lamented that the church was yet to get any response from the NNPC, months after writing the corporation for a solution.


The pastor said the well has become a source of harassment to the church and our members. Paul said aside the harassment, the church was afraid of the impending hazard which it cannot determine. The NSCDC

Lagos commandant, Tajudeen Balogun, who led the operation, confirmed the discovery. He said the visit to the church was to evaluate the extent of the spillage and take necessary actions. This came barely two weeks after the police and other security agencies shut about 10 houses on Ibadan and Abeokuta streets in Ilasamaja axis of the state, over discovery of shallow oil wells built by landlords to illegally scoop diesel from pipeline.
