NSCDC Arrests Two for Vandalising Ikeja Electric Cable

NSCDC Arrests Two for Vandalising Ikeja Electric Cable

Operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC), arrested two suspects for vandalising a power distribution cable of Ikeja Electric Plc said to be  worth N500,000.

The suspects who were identified as 32-year-old Remi Aina and 22-year-old Mayowa Adedoyin, were apprehended by the anti-vandal team of the command. According to the NSCDC Lagos State Commander, Tajudeen Balogun, the operatives were able to arrest the suspects with the help of some residents who provided information about the vandals.

He said the suspects went to vandalise the cable at around 2a.m, when they thought most security agencies had gone to bed, without knowing that some persons saw them. He said: “Cutting off cables is now becoming rampant, but if the suspects do not have buyers, they wouldn’t be going  to vandalise cables on daily basis. The suspects have thrown many communities in the state into darkness, which has also made the Ikeja Electric’s effort to illuminate some communities backward.”

Balogun said they are also working with the some cable marketers in the state since the cut cables that are sold in the market are often stolen, thus many of the marketers have been arrested. He also said the suspects would be charged to court after investigation.
