NSCDC Arrests 3 Cable Vandals In Abuja



The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Federal Capital Territory (FCT) command has arrested three cable vandals, along the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan Way.

The vandals, Adams Teri (36), Sani Musa (25) and Israel Sati (25), were said to be removing the armoured cables that supply light to the west end of the express road, which is still under construction.

Parading the suspects in Abuja yesterday, Commandant, Patrick Ukpan explained that the command was alerted of the activities of the suspects three weeks before and have been patrolling the area with the aim of apprehending them.

“We started monitoring their activities after an alert three weeks ago. A patrol team was deployed to that axis. Severally, they were seen but escaped on sighting our men. But they were not so lucky this time. Our plain clothes operatives sighted about eight of them, chased after them and succeeded in apprehending three of them.”

Ukpan stressed that the suspects are helping security operatives in an on-going investigation to apprehend the ring leaders, adding that security was being tightened in the various blind spots.

The commandant urged FCT residents to be on alert and always report any suspicious character around public facilities to security operatives immediately as time was of great essence, adding that the job of securing public facilities should not be left to security operatives alone.
