Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Jigawa has said it arrested a 25-year-old groom-to-be over alleged theft of road shoulder gravels in Babura Local Government Area of the state, NAN reports.
Spokesman of the corps, DSC Adamu Shehu, said the suspect was arrested by men of the command with 11 bags of 50 kilograms of gravels he allegedly stole from the shoulder of Aduware village road.
He said that the suspect, who confessed to committing the offence, told the corps he stole the gravels in order to complete the building of his house in the area.
“The suspects said he stole the gravels in order to complete the building of his house, and not to sell them”, Shehu told NAN.
“He said he needed the gravels as it is just three weeks to his wedding.
“He was arrested with 11 bags of 50kgs full of gravels obtained from the shoulder of one of the roads in Aduware village in Babura Local Government Area by our men on routine patrol on the road,” he said.
The spokesman added that the suspect would soon be charged to court.
According to him, it is an act of vandalism for anyone to take gravels from any part of a road, no matter his reason (s).
“So, the corps will not fold its arm while people vandalise infrastructure provided by government at all levels for the well being of the citizens.
“So, anyone caught vandalising any infrastructure will be made to face the full wrath of the law, no matter his reason,” Shehu warned. THINK YOUR FRIEND WOULD BE INTRESTED? SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE SHARE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
