Oyo NSCDC Arrests 5 Suspected Vandals, Impounds Tanker

The Oyo State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on Wednesday said it had arrested five suspected vandals in Oyo-East and Akinyele Local Government Areas.

The Commandant, Mr Shem Obafaiye, told newsmen in Ibadan that the command had been trailing the suspects until they were apprehended.

According to him, ambush was laid for three of the suspects after careful surveillance at Oyo town while the other two were apprehended at Moniya area.

He also said one drilling machine with bits, three spades, one digger and two hose bundles were confiscated.

Others items confiscated from the vandals were clamps, pliers, spanners, plugs, one bar, screw drivers and a two-inch ball valve.

Obafaiye further said: “These people were among those that vandalised on that day and the scars on their legs gave them away as most of them were still receiving treatment when they were caught.
