The Special Protection Unit of the Lagos State Police Command has apprehended a 19-year-old bricklayer, Taiye Mufutau and a trader, Rabiu Mohamed, for allegedly stealing electric cables belonging to the Lagos State Electricity Board.
PUNCH Metro learnt that the suspects were arrested around Eko Bridge on Tuesday after some of the company’s security guards spotted them.
The suspects were said to have fled into an electricity unit where one of them was nearly electrocuted.
Mohammed, a 30-year-old man, said he had only stolen electric cables twice. He blamed his action on unemployment and unfavourable policies of the state government.
He said, “I was a scavenger. I used to sell metal scrap which I conveyed with my wheel barrow. This is what I used to feed my wife and daughter.
“However, when the state government came up with a law banning street hawking and other similar jobs, task force operatives started disturbing me. They seized five wheel barrows from me.
“When the trouble became too much, I couldn’t get any other means of livelihood, I decided to start stealing electric cables. The first one I stole, I sold it for N4, 000.”
Mufutau attributed his involvement to greed, adding that Mohammed introduced him to the crime.It is kind of funny but the truth is that there is poverty in the land May GOD ALMIGHTY deliver from from its hands can someone say Amen to that.

Maku apologises to Senate
At the said press conference, Maku had been pressed for comments on the resolutions of both arms of the National Assembly, asking President Goodluck Jonathan to drop the proposed N5000 note and conversion of N5, N10 and N20 to coins
Maku had responded by saying that the National Assembly could not dictate to President Jonathan.
However, while appearing before the committee, Maku was confronted with the Doctrine of Necessity which was passed into resolutions by the Senate and House of Representatives in February 2010 and enabled then Vice-President Goodluck Jonathan to become Acting President.
At the time, President Umaru Yar’Adua was hospitalised in Saudi Arabi, a situation which created a power vacuum as he did not hand over to Jonathan before leaving Nigeria for Saudi Arabia.
The committee reminded Maku that these resoluions led to Jonathan ascending the office of President when Yar’Adua eventually died.
The committee also reminded Maku that his emergence as minister was made possible after a resolution passed by the Senate, to which he agreed.
The minister said his comments were not meant to disparage the National Assembly and tendered an apology.
