A man named Sunday Yomi Komolafe, aged 38, has been paraded by the Kogi State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for allegedly vandalizing a transformer in Isanlu, Yagba East Local Government Area of the state.

The suspect was apprehended by members of a vigilante group while he was in the act of vandalizing the armoured cable of the transformer that supplies electricity to Amuro and seven other communities in Mopa LGA, stated Ahmad Ghandi Ahmad, the Commandant of NSCDC in Kogi, during the parade held on Wednesday.

The suspect has admitted to the crime and will face charges in court once the investigation is concluded.
