Lafia –  The Police in Nasarawa State have arrested nine persons for allegedly buying stolen property from suspected vandals.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, DSP Kennedy Idirisu, told newsmen on Wednesday in Lafia that the arrest followed complaint from the State Government on the increasing rate of vandalism on public installations.

Idirisu said that the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr Abubakar Sadiq-Bello, had given a marching order due to the incessant cases of street light vandalism in the state capital, which led to the arrest of the suspects.

He said some of the suspects were apprehended with the stolen components of the streetlights and were already giving useful information to the police.
