Walkers noticed the oil-like substance on January 18, and said the substance was odourless.

However, NNDC officers visited the scene and said that the debris was just natural debris caused by a nearby highways drainage flush-out.

The NNDC officers were happy that no unnatural substances or rubbish were entering the water.

The tide washed it away later that day.
