The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Federal Capital Territory Command, has nabbed and paraded 20 suspected vandals and manhole thieves.
Commandant of the FCT command, Olusola Odumosu, said most of the arrested thieves were caught stealing manholes and vandalising government property in various areas in the FCT.
Odumosu said the Corps would no longer tolerate the activities of scavengers in the city centre of the FCT.
The Commandant said: “To counteract the escalating instances of theft and vandalism that have been adversely impacting the FCT Metropolis, the Command took an active approach.
“We activated strategically planned routine night patrols, which proved to be highly effective.
“In the course of these patrols, we successfully arrested 20) scavengers and miscreants within the stipulated time frame. The arrested suspects underwent comprehensive interview and profiling processes.
“Subsequently, they will be handed over to the Abuja Environmental Protection Board (AEPB) for prosecution.
“These intensified measures serve a dual purpose: deterring potential criminals and ensuring the apprehension of those responsible for these unlawful activities.
“Through these actions, we are sending an unequivocal and resolute message that criminal behaviour will no longer be tolerated within our jurisdiction.
“The proactive strategy we have embraced underscores the unswerving commitment of the government to address the concerns of its citizens. We are steadfastly dedicated to safeguarding the integrity of critical national assets and infrastructure throughout the FCT Metropolis.”
