The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Anambra State Command has arrested two suspects for attempting to move adulterated kerosene.
The State Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Mr. Vincent Ogu disclosed this while parading the suspects at the Command’s Headquarters in Awka.
Our correspondent was there and reports that according to Mr. Ogu, the suspects were intercepted by the Anti-Vandalism Squad along Onitsha-Owerri Expressway Ihiala on the thirtieth of last Month.
The suspects are Chukwuebuka Kalu and Solomon Ogbonna.
The agency also intercepted a bus with Lagos State registration number 827YD containing diesel at Okija, all in Ihiala Local Government Area while the suspects abandoned their vehicle and its contents and took to their heels.
Mr. Ogu said that parading the suspects is to sound a warning to all criminal elements to relocate as the command has strategically positioned twenty-four hour surveillance on all entrance and exits of the State.
It said the agency is geared towards reducing crime and anti-social behaviour, enhance safety as well as provide water tight security in the State.
He commended the security friendly disposition of Governor Willie Obiano and assured that officers and men of the command are motivated to ensuring serious service delivery.
Confessing to the crime, one of the suspects, Mr. Ogbonna pleaded for lenience.
