Abia Govt Raises Alarm Over Vandalism Of Public Infrastructure By Hoodlums

The Government of Abia State, on Wednesday, expressed dismay at the activities of criminal elements engaged in the nefarious act of vandalizing street lights and iron rods used for drainage works in Aba.

In a press statement by Chief Okey Ahiwe, the Chief of Staff to the Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu on Wednesday, the government said such acts are perpetrated by metal scrap dealers, popularly called (akpakara) in the state, with the help of cart pushers.

The government directed security agencies in the state to strengthen the security of public infrastructure and fish out perpetrators of the heinous crimes and bring them to book.

The statement said, “the Governor in the same vein, directs the Commissioner for Trade and Investment, Chief John Okiyi Kalu, to immediately take steps to set up a task force to ensure that business of scrap dealing in Abia State is sanitized”.
