  2. The staff or the workers of Nigerian pipeline and storage company should be questioned about the incident of the said fire outbreak consuming part of the company, let investigation been carried out to find out the root of the fire outbreak, because as this might be a means of looting the company by some of the staff.

  3. Comment:that is a bad incident. if Nigeria had a good and sencitive investigation team in the police, they should find out the cause to this fire
