He said the first suspect, Mustapha Lawal, 35, was arrested for breaking into the cashier’s office of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) in Katsina.
“The first suspect was arrested by our operatives guarding the KEDCO business office for breaking into the cashier’s office where he is serving as a security guard.
“According to the suspect, he used N240,000 of the money he stole to buy a used “Boxer’’ motorcycle.
“Similarly, our men on patrol at Kafur Local Government Area of the state arrested a suspected transformer vandal identified as Muntari Ali, 20,’’ he said.
According to Tukur-Abdara, the suspect was arrested inside the fence around the transformer located at Barakai Village while trying to vandalise the facility.
“Before he was arrested, he had already drained the transformer oil worth hundreds of thousands of Naira.
“Both suspects confessed to have committed the crimes and would be prosecuted as soon as investigations are concluded,’’ he added.
Tukur-Abdara appealed to the general public to assist the NSCDC and other security agencies with accurate and prompt information about any suspicious person or activities.
