Preye Ayase, a suspected cable thief, has been trending on social media after being punished with a plate of noodles in Agorogbene community, Sagbama Local Government Area, Bayelsa State.
According to reports, on Wednesday, April 20, the suspect and his accomplice, Ringo Tareladei, were caught red-handed vandalizing power cables connecting the Ogobiri and Agorogbene settlements in Sagbama.
The President of the Creek Youths Agenda (CYA),Ouseibai Seperegha Godsgift, expressed his disappointment over the unfortunate incident in a statement made available to newsmen by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Ebis Okpeke, and urged youths in the area to immediately turn a new leaf going forward.
He said: “It is very sad and unfortunate that young people were caught vandalizing our near none electric infrastructures with the aim of making money. It is more worrisome especially now that we are agitating for more development of the creek considering its neglect developmentally over the years. To me, i feel pained that young people who ought to protect our facilities in the creek are the ones perpetrating such neferous acts of destruction.
“Therefore, I urge those with such criminal minds to desist from such and engage themselves in productive ventures that will add value to our creek and the society at large or they should be ready to face the full wrath of the law when apprehended,” the CYA president has added.
Godsgift, on behalf of the community, appeals to the Bayelsa State Government to come to the affected communities and reinstall already damaged electric facilities in Agorogbene, Ogobiri, and other communities as soon as possible. See more photos below;
