Lagos-bound thieves nabbed with Kogi’s 53 stolen transformers

The Governor of Kogi State, Usman Ododo, on Monday, commended security agencies in the state for the recovery of 53 transformers stolen from the National Integrated Power Project facility in the state.

He described the security agencies operating in the state as steadfast in discharging their responsibilities.

In a statement on Monday by his media adviser, Adviser, Ismaila Isah, Ododo said, “The recent interception of 53 electrical transformers meant for electrification projects in different parts of the state is apt and commendable.

“More thrilling is the subsequent arrest of members of a criminal gang responsible for the act as an indication of improvement in the fight against crime in the state.

“The electrical transformers were stolen from the National Integrated Power Project facility in the state by the gang of criminals who were arrested in Obajana on their way to Lagos State,” he said.

Ododo said the 53 electrical transformers, which had now been recovered and kept at an Abuja Electricity Distribution Company facility in the state, would have frustrated efforts to supply power to different communities.

“The beauty of this breakthrough is that the criminals volunteered useful information that led to the arrest of a fleeing member of the gang in Ilorin, Kwara State, and the alleged receiver of the transformers in Lagos State,” he said.

The governor assured security agencies of his administration’s maximum support to ensure the security of the lives and property of residents of the state.
