Four people have been nabbed by the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Anambra State Command.

They were nabbed for vandalising the electricity armoured cable that powers the Chinua Achebe International Airport in Umueri.

The suspects, who reportedly specialise in vandalising armoured wires and other electrical facilities, were apprehended by Corps operatives on November 4, 2023.

The NSCDC State Commandant, Edwin Osuala, who paraded the suspects in Awka, on Friday, said the arrest came as a result of timely and credible intelligence provided to the Corps by a diligent Awka resident.

”The Command received a distress call about 6:30 am on Monday, Nov. 4, 2023, reporting that a group of people were vandalising armoured cable behind the Dr. Alex Ekwueme Square Awka.

“Upon the information, operatives of the command swung into action and arrested four suspects with bundles of vandalized armoured electric cable.

The arrested persons, all males, are “Monday Chukwu, aged 37 from Ntezi Ebonyi State, Okwudiri Nnaji, aged 29, from Idodo Nkanu East Enugu State, Agu Ikechukwu, aged 20 from Ehamufu Isiuzo Local Government Area (LGA), Enugu State, and Chinecherem Idoho, from Uboloafor Udenu, Enugu State,” he said.

The State Commandant directed the Investigation and Intelligence Department to activate the mechanism for apprehending other fleeing suspects in connection with the crime.

He said after thorough investigation, all suspects would be arraigned in court.

Osuala frowned at the operations of power installation vandals in the state, who he described as economic saboteurs and warned that anyone found would face the full force of the law.
