Cable vandals arrested in Kano. The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps’ Kano State Command has detained two individuals in connection with an alleged robbery, theft, and vandalism of armoured cables and three driven unit batteries belonging to Kano Electricity Distribution Company.

The command also revealed that three additional suspects are still at large.

This was stated in a statement issued on behalf of the State Commandant, Mohammed Falala, by the command’s Public Relations Officer, DSC Ibrahim Abdullahi, and made accessible to newsmen on Friday.

According to him, the arrest was made on Thursday by officers of the Anti-Vandalism Unit of the command at the KEDCO’s distribution substation situated at Briscoe Independence Road, Nassarawa LGA, Kano.

“The suspects were apprehended after our officers swiftly responded to a midnight distressed call about what was happening at the station,” Abdullahi said.

Anas Shamsu, 26, of Kumbotso Local Government, and Nasiru Muhammad, 25, of Tamburawa Yamma, Dawakin Kudu Local Government Area, were named as suspects.

According to him, the suspects are currently in the custody of the corps and are being investigated before being charged in court.

“The unfortunate incident of vandalism of these armoured cables (45mm) and three driven unit batteries has significantly affected the supply of electricity to many places in Kano, leaving various communities in total darkness.”

“However, the recent arrest and eventual recovery of the items will undoubtedly bring relief, restoring power supply to those areas,” the statement continued.
