Four suspects nabbed for alleged transformer theft in Ebonyi

Members of the Neighbourhood Watch in Afikpo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, on Thursday, arrested four suspects who are allegedly specialists in stealing transformers and electricity wires in different parts of the country.

The suspects, who were reportedly from a South-South state, were on a mission to steal a transformer in Akpoha, Afikpo Local Government Area and were on the verge of carrying the transformer when they were nabbed by the members of the Neighbourhood Watch.

It was alleged that they came in the company of an indigene of Akpoha who is currently at large.

Michael Urom, the Commander of the Neighbourhood Watch, who, alongside his men, apprehended the suspects, called on the members of the public to report any suspicious persons or suspicious moves to security agencies for prompt action.

He further confirmed that the suspects had been handed over to the police.

DAILY POST called the Ebonyi State Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Joshua Ukandu, but his phone line was not reachable.
