The Lagos state police command has disclosed that its operatives have foiled an attempt by armed hoodlums to vandalise power installations at the Dangote Refinery.

According to Cable , police public relations officer (PPRO), Benja Hundeyin said that the incident happened at about 11 am on Monday.

He said, “Some shootings occurred, one of them was hit, and the others escaped. They were about 20 in numbers. The one that was hit died on the way to the hospital.

” “Security around that area has been fortified and investigation has begun. No arrest has been made.”
