Five policemen arrested for vandalizing electric installation

Speaking through its public relations officer, Kennedy Idirisu,
the Nassarawa state police command disclosed that it has
arrested a superintendent and four other officers of the
force for vandalising a power installation.
Mr. Idirisu said that the suspects allegedly vandalised a
transformer at Obi junction in Obi Local Government Area of
the state. He said that operatives of the Special Anti-
Robbery Squad acting on special information swung into
action and arrested the suspects on November 17 and
recovered four rolls of cable and tools used in vandalising
the transformer. The spokesperson said that the state
Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department had
begun investigation into the matter, while disciplinary
procedures against the officers are underway.
According to him, the command was determined to purge
the force of ‘bad eggs’ in line with the Inspector-General’s
Policy of zero tolerance for corruption and unprofessional
conduct.
“In view of this, the case will be diligently investigated and
all persons found culpable will be prosecuted,” Mr. Idirisu
said.
