Two streets light cable defacers who operate mostly by midnight have been apprehended and march by the Lagos State government.
The suspects who were tied to the outage of power within a short space of time of lighting up roads reportedly feigned to be technicians while carrying out the illicit act.
A statement released by Lagos State Electricity Board reads;
One of the numerous challenges we face with sustaining the provision of street lights in some areas in Lagos is the vandalization of cables and equipment. We often realize there’s an outage of power within a short space of time of lighting up roads
These cable vandals operate mostly at midnight and sometimes pretend to be technicians. We urge Lagosians to be conscious and vigilant. It is a collective responsibility to ensure the sustainability of government property
