Ogun : NSCDC arrests suspected vandal, recovers armoured cable


The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Command in Ogun, on Tuesday,  said it has arrested a suspected vandal, Ahmed Hassan, at Ijumo-Ologboni village  in  Ewekoro-North local council development area (LCDA) of the state.

The Ogun State Commandant of NSCDC, Hammed Abodunrin, stated this while briefing newsmen in Abeokuta.

Abodunrin said that the 27-year old suspect was arrested on October 12  through a tip-off  from members of the community  who raised alarm over vandalisation and theft  of the armoured  cable in their area.

The commandant said that the two other members of the team fled at the sight of the NSCDC officials who invaded the area,  but Hassan who hid inside swampy water in the area  with the vandalised cables  valued at over N1 million was later arrested.

He explained that Hassan claimed to be a motorcyclists and that he was hired by two people whom he identified as “Dogo  and Yellow” to carry goods at Ijumo-Ologboni village.

“Investigations confirmed vandalisation of six armoured underground cables connected to the two poles of the newly constructed light rail across Asipa-Ilao and Ijumo-Ologboni communities,” he said.

“Our check reveals that vandals do invade the area during rainfall to perpetrate such crime knowing quite well that movements are usually restricted at such times,” he said.

He added that the village and its environs  had since been thrown into total darkness.
The commandant said investigations were  ongoing on the issue adding that his men would surely apprehend the other two suspects at large.

He commended members of the Ijumo-Ologboni community for the information and their  co-operation.

Abodunrin urged members of the public to emulate such act, saying that “it  makes our job easier”.
