Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, in Osun State has arrested a senior civil servant with the State Ministry of Works, Julius Adetokunbo, who was said to have stolen some components of a transformer.
NSCDC Commandant in the State, Olusola Ayodele, made this known during the parade of Adetokunbo and an accomplice, Muideen Agunbiade, at the command in Osogbo.
The transformer, from where the duo allegedly stole 12 coils, was installed inside the State’s Civil Service Secretariat in Abere.
Ayodele said, “The NSCDC officers attached to the secretariat, who were on stop-and-search operation, discovered the transformer’s components inside a Nissan Sunny car where the suspects hid them while transporting them to where they would be sold.”
The NSCDC boss, however, said the command would not tolerate vandalism and any unlawful act in the state, adding that the suspect would be charged to court soon.
The civil servant, while insisting that he was caught the first time he was embarking on such act, said he needed money to pay his children’s fees.
