RRS nabs cable thief in Lagos

 A cable thief was on early Thursday morning arrested by the officials of the Lagos State Rapid Response Squad (RRS) in Ikeja area of the state.

 

The thief, identified as Peter Abah, 32, was arrested on Mobolaji Johnson Road, Ikeja with the cables concealed inside a wheelbarrow.

 

The suspect, who was released from Badagry Prison in December, 2018 after being convicted for stealing Solar Panels, told the police that he along with two others, now at large, severed the cable from a newly installed transformer in the area.

 

“We were three. We cut the cable from a transformer. We climbed the electric pole before removing the cables from It.

 

“I was just being unlucky. My colleagues’ names are Godwin and Zuma. We all connived to cut the upright cables, and we knew we could make something out of it to augment our salaries.”
