Abia State government has decried the destruction of the newly installed facilities for streetlights on the Ahia Eke Road and IBB Way in Umuahia by vandals.

The Chief Press Secretary, Godwin Adindu, in a statement, pointed out that the vandals were frustrating the efforts of Governor Okezie Ikpeazu to improve the living condition and welfare of Abians.

Adindu stated that the vandals had been carting away the electric cables installed by the contractors handling the electrification project, Kanel International Limited.

The chief press secretary, while stating that the state government had replaced the cables and re-energized the streetlights for the second time, warned the

vandals and their colluding agents to desist from their criminal activities or face the full weight of the law.

He appealed to residents of the areas to be partners with government in protecting and safeguarding   the utilities which are meant to serve the people by apprehending such culprits and handing them over to the law enforcement agencies.
