The Kano State Command of the NSCDC under the able leadership of Commandant Mohammed Lawal Falala, FCNA has apprehended 2 suspects with connection of suspected case of robbery, theft and vandalisation of armored cables(45mm) and 3 driven unit batteries belonging to Kano Electricity Distribution Company ( KEDCO).
This is contained in a statement signed by DSC Ibrahim Idris Abdullahi, CDPRO Kano command.
According to him, the arrest was made by gallant officers of Anti Vandalism Unit of the command at the KEDCO’s distribution sub-station situated at Briscoe Independence road, Nassarawa LGA, Kano. The officers had swiftly responded to a midnight distressed call about happening at the station.
“The suspects: Anas Shamsu ‘M’ 26yrs of Kumbotso local government and Nasiru Muhammad ‘M’ 25yrs of Tamburawa Yamma, Dawakin Kudu Local government area. The suspects are currently in custody of the Corps undergoing investigation in conclusion of which they will be prosecuted. Meanwhile, operatives of civil defence are on the trails of 3 more suspects, one Abenja, Ghali and Abbati who’re at large.
“The unfortunate incident ( vandalisation of these armor cables and 3 driven unit batteries) has largely affected supply of electricity to many places in Kano leaving different communities in total black out. However with the recent arrest and eventual recovery of the items, that will no doubt bring succour there by restoring power supply to those areas.”
